Terror Attack At Beersheba Central Bus Station

One person was killed and seven people have been injured in a shooting and stabbing terror attack at Be'er Sheva's Central Bus Station. One of the casualties was seriously injured and four more have suffered moderate wounds. The seventh casualty is lightly wounded, according to Magen David Adom chief Eli Bin.

Two terrorists are believed to have carried out the attack. One suspected terrorist has been killed and the other is in critical condition. He was reportedly caught and shot after he hid in a public restroom.

Security camera footage apparently shows how one of the terrorists was shot dead.

However, Channel 1 quoted police as saying one of the men shot as a suspected terrorist may not have been a terrorist at all, but an Eritrean infiltrator who was mistaken for a terrorist.

According to reports, one of the terrorists was armed with a gun and the other with a knife. They were reportedly brought to the Central Bus Station in a car by an accomplice who then drove off and there is a dragnet in search of that vehicle.

A large number of Magen David Adom paramedics and police delivered emergency first aid to victims and evacuated them to Soroka hospital.

It is not clear how the armed terrorists succeeded in penetrating into the Central Bus Station, which is under heavy security.

Chief Superintendent Doron Ben Amo of the Be'er Sheva police said that the terrorists were apparently armed with a knife and a handgun. One of the terrorists stabbed a soldier and took his M-16 semiautomatic rifle from him, and then started firing it.
