Two Palestinian teenagers stabbing two Israeli victims, killing one and wounding the other, in the Binyamin Region of the West Bank Thursday outside of the Rami Levi supermarket in Sha’ar Binyamin.
One of them, 21 years old, was critically wounded after suffering stab wounds to his neck. He was treated at the scene and transported, unconscious, to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem where he later succumbed to his wounds.
The second victim, 36-year-old Avi Avital, resident of the nearby Jewish community of Tel Zion, suffered moderate stab wounds in the back and was transported fully conscious to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. Several other people at the scene suffered from shock, including a pregnant woman.
“We pray for a quick recovery of the two victims, both residents of the Binyamin Region,” Avi Roeh, Head of the Binyamin Regional Council told TPS before one of them was pronounced dead. “Our social workers are already working with the victims’ families to support them in this difficult time. We support the Israeli security forces in their war against terrorism.”
The two wounded terrorists, residents of the Palestinian village of Beitunia, were treated at the scene and transported to an Israeli hospital.
The Shaar Binyamin industrial zone is a joint shopping and business area where both Jews and Palestinians often coexisted together peacefully until today.
