At the secured entrance to the Israeli community of Karmei Tzur (an hoour’s drive south of Jerusalem) in Gush Etzion, a Palestinian Arab equipped with an attack knife stabbed one of the security people inside the booth at around 6:30 this morning (Wednesday). The Israeli suffered knifing injuries. Times of Israel says a second security person shot the assailant and killed him.
The injured Israeli, said to be a male of about 34, was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics and rushed to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek hospital, fully conscious, for emergency care.
We’re evidently in the midst of one of those periodic upticks in Arab-on-Israeli knifing attacks. More details coming.
