Israel is experiencing one Palestinian terror attack after the other, almost on an hourly basis.
The latest attack, the fourth in Israel and the third in the capital in the past 24 hours, occurred Monday afternoon in the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood in north Jerusalem when two Palestinian terrorists, aged 14 and 15, stabbed and wounded two Israelis, one of them a teen.
One Israeli, 25, was seriously wounded. After stabbing the man, the terrorists searched for another victim and found the teen, a 13-year-old boy, and critically stabbed and wounded him while he was riding his bike.
Medical teams fought for the lives of both victims at the site of the attack and then evacuated them to Hadassah Har Hazofim hospital in the capital.
One Palestinian terrorist was shot dead. Another was critically wounded and arrested by police. He was apparently hit by a vehicle while fleeing the scene.
This terror attack occurred just an hour after a female Palestinian terrorist assaulted and stabbed a border policeman adjacent to the police national headquarters in Jerusalem. She was shot and critically wounded. The policeman was treated for light stab wounds.
Earlier on Monday, security forces shot and killed a Palestinian terrorist who tried to stab them while they stood guard at the Old City’s Lions Gate.
Speaking at the opening the Knesset winter session, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Palestinian terror’s objective is, and has always been, to eliminate the State of Israel, and is not derived from ill feelings or suppressed frustration, like some have claimed.
He vowed that Israel would fight the wave of terror, while constantly striving for peace with Israel’s Arab neighbors who, likewise, seek peace.
