2 Israeli Women Seriously Wounded in Palestinian Stabbing Attack in Community Grocery Store
One Israeli woman was wounded critically, and another woman moderately, in a Palestinian stabbing attack in the settlement of Beit Horon early Monday evening, the Hebrew media reported.
According to Israel’s Channel 2, two knife-wielding terrorists entered the grocery store of the settlement, located north of Jerusalem, and began to stab a woman shopper. They then fled, stabbing a second woman on their way out.
A security guard who caught sight of the terrorists trying to leave the settlement shot and killed them.
Meanwhile, according to Israeli news site nrg, Magen David Adom paramedics administered first aid to the women, one 23 years old and the other 58, before evacuating them to the Hadassah/Mount Scopus Medical Center and the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, both in Jerusalem.
This is the third attack in which terrorists armed with knives have infiltrated a community and committed an attack. Last week, a pregnant woman in Tekoa was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack, a day after a mother-of-six was stabbed to death in her Otniel home.
UPDATE: Channel 2 reports say that the terrorists entered the settlement armed not only with knives, but with explosives as well.
