Palestinian terrorists murder Israeli ex-officer in Jordan Valley
Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists broke into a home in the Jordan Valley on Thursday night, attacking a couple who was in the home.
The husband was critically injured and died a short time later. The woman was lightly injured, was treated by paramedics at the scene and then taken to the HaEmek Hospital in Afula.
The woman said that she and her husband heard a noise outside their home and, upon going outside to check it out, were attacked by Arabs who used iron bars and axes.
The woman managed to escape the attack and called security forces. IDF troops have set up roadblocks in the region and are looking for the attackers, who fled the scene.
Thursday night’s attack is the latest in a series of attacks that have taken place over the past few weeks.
Last Saturday, a terrorist infiltrated the Binyamin region community of Psagot, shooting nine-year-old Noam Glick at close range and then fleeing.
The IDF continues to investigate the attack. Two brothers from the Palestinian Authority town of Kfar el-Bireh have reportedly been arrested as suspects.
On September 22, IDF soldier Gal (Gavriel) Kobi was killed by a terrorist sniper in Hevron.
Several days before this attack, IDF soldier Tomer Hazan was kidnapped and murdered by a PA Arab terrorist with whom he had worked in a restaurant in Bat Yam. The terrorist lured Hazan to Samaria, where he murdered him and disposed of his body.
