Palestinian Breaks Into Home, Stabs Three Israelis To Death

World | Russ Read
A Palestinian stabbed three Israelis to death and wounded a third in a West Bank settlement on Friday. The attacker broke into the victims' home, located in a West Bank settlement near Halamish, before stabbing them, according to the Times of Israel. The victims included a man in his 40s, another in his 60s and a woman in her 40s, according to paramedics. A fourth woman was also reported to be in serious condition on the way to a nearby medical center in Jerusalem. A neighbor shot the Palestinian attacker, though reports are conflicted as to whether he is dead or alive. "When we went into the house we saw four casualties lying [on the floor] with stab wounds," Ohad Amitoun, a rescue worker with Israel Maden David Odom emergency service told the Times of Israel. "Another 60-year-old woman was conscious and suffered stab wounds to her upper body. She was treated at the scene and was evacuated by an MDA intensive care ambulance. She was in moderate-serious condition." The deadly attack followed a series of violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces in east Jerusalem and the West Bank, which left three Palestinians dead and more than 190 injured. The clashes were a response to Israeli's installation of new metal detectors outside the Temple Mount compound, which houses the al-Aqsa mosque. Israeli security forces installed the metal detectors after a group of Palestinian terrorists shot and killed three Israeli police near the compound. Israel fell victim to a series of Palestinian stabbings throughout 2015 and 2016. The Trump administration called upon Israel and Jordan, which helps run Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem, to find a solution to the Temple Mount issue. A solution may not be likely in the near future though, as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has ceased official contact with Israel in response to the ongoing conflict.
