A young Arab man on Saturday afternoon stabbed and wounded a 65-year-old woman at the street market in Rahat, a Bedouin-majority city in southern Israel. The attacker quickly fled. Police announced that the stabbing was apparently a terror attack and that the victim was a resident of a kibbutz in southern Israel.

Rahat Mayor Talal al-Kirnawi said a masked Palestinian who was in Israel illegally committed the terror attack. The mayor condemned the attack and said he believed there were about 7,000 people in Rahat illegally at any given time.

  • I am relieved to hear that the Beduin were not involved.

    Clearly, more must be done to secure the borders, and keeping a city like Rahat free of illegal aliens should be just as high a priority as with any other city in Israel.
