Three Israelis were murdered and over 20 wounded in four terror attacks in just four hours throughout Israel. As a result of severe attacks Tuesday, Prime Minister Netanyahu called for an emergency cabinet meeting Tuesday afternoon.
On Tuesday morning, 22-year-old terrorist stabbed a 32-year-old in the neck and stomach in the town of Ra’anana. Civilians subdued the terrorist, and both the victim and terrorist were rushed to a nearby hospital. Just an hour later in Ra’anana, a terrorist from East Jerusalem stabbed four people, one in critical condition. A civilian stopped the terrorist by hitting him with his car. Civilians subdued the terrorist until police arrived.
Three were murdered and 17 injured in Jerusalem in what security officials now believe to have been planned, simultaneous terror attacks.
In one of the attacks, two terrorists boarded a bus armed with a knife and gun, locking the door. One of the terrorists reportedly attempted to kill the driver and drive away with the bus.
One of six victims of the attack was killed during the attack and one pronounced dead while hospitalized. Security forces were able to break the door, killing one of the terrorists and neutralizing the second.
In the second attack, an Israeli-Arab terrorist drove his vehicle into a bus stop, killing one and wounding three others. The terrorist was driving a company vehicle. The victim killed was Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky.
Hamas praised the terror attacks and stated that they are a “message to anyone who harms our holy places. We call to continue the intifada, which is the natural response to the world’s silence.”
