An Israeli man was murdered on Thursday by a Palestinian who tried to infiltrate the town of Kedumim, located some six miles west of Nablus (Shechem) in Samaria.

Magen David Adom emergency medical personnel treated the victim at the scene before evacuating him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Initial reports said that the victim was a member of the security forces.

The shooting attack took place between the Git Junction and Mitzpe Yishai. The latter is an “outpost” of Kedumim located to the south of the main town. The terrorist, who used a “Carlo”-type submachine gun, was shot dead near Git.

A search was underway to check for possible accomplices who had escaped.

The IDF’s Home Front Command ordered residents to remain in their homes until further notice.

On Tuesday, a Palestinian terrorist drove his car into pedestrians at a bus stop on Pinchas Rosen Street in Tel Aviv’s northeastern Ramat Hahayal neighborhood.

He then got out of the vehicle and stabbed additional victims with a sharp object, police said. There were seven victims in total.

A pregnant woman subsequently lost her baby while fighting for her life in the hospital.

On Monday, a 14-year-old Palestinian stabbed an Israeli man in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak. The victim was evacuated in moderate condition to Maayanei Hayeshua Medical Center in the city, which is located east of Tel Aviv.

Earlier Monday, the Israel Defense Forces began a major counterterror operation in Jenin, including the entry into the Samaria city of significant ground forces.

Last month, four Israelis were killed and four others were wounded in a shooting near the town of Eli in the Binyamin region of Samaria.

The attack took place at the entrance to a restaurant at a gas station on Route 60 located below Eli, which is north of Ramallah and south of Nablus.
