Terror Strikes Hearts of Israel’s Central Cities

“There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.” (Proverbs 30:14)

In the latest of the string of Palestinian terror attacks in Israel, a terrorist stabbed three people in Rishon Lezion on Monday. This incident was followed by another stabbing of a 71-year-old man in Netanya.

The terrorist in Rishon Lezion first attacked and wounded a man on a bus, before getting off the bus and stabbing an elderly woman and another man inside a bakery. The 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist from Hebron was then arrested by police.

“When we arrived at the scene we saw an 80-year-old woman laying near a bakery on the floor on Herzl Street. She was fully conscious and suffering from a stab wound to her upper body. We provided first aid and evacuated her to Asaf Haropeh hospital in moderate-serious condition,” said Yoni Ohayun, a senior paramedic with Israel’s Magen David Adom (MDA) national emergency response group, who arrived on scene, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
