Stabbing Attack in Beit Shemesh

A young ultra-orthodox man was stabbed outside a Beit Shemesh synagogue by two Palestinians in an apparent terror attack Thursday morning. The attackers were quickly shot by police.

The eighteen year old victim, whose named has not yet been released, is in mild to moderate condition with stab wounds to his upper body and is being treated at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, according to Magen David Adom.

According to police and eyewitnesses, the pair first attempted to board a school bus in the Ramat Beit Shemesh Gimmel neighborhood but were repelled by the driver. They continued down the street before assaulting the young man outside of the Kol Yehuda synagogue and subsequently being shot at a nearby bus stop.

Tragedy: Jewish mentally ill man mistaken for terrorist shot dead clashing with soldiers identified as Simcha Hodedtov.

The security spot check of a Jewish man behaving erratically outside the capital’s downtown central bus station late Wednesday night turned into a deadly shooting when the suspect, believed to be an Arab terrorist, fought two IDF soldier’s and reached for one of their guns.

According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, at approximately 11:30 p.m. the unidentified man drew the attention of the soldiers upon exiting an Egged bus across the street from the central bus station.

“He was acting very suspiciously, and two IDF soldiers patrolling the area as part of Jerusalem’s heightened security suspected he may be a terrorist and asked him to present his identification, but the man said he refused to show it,” Rosenfeld said on Thursday morning.

“When the soldiers began questioning him, it turned into a fight, and the man tried to take a gun from one of the soldiers. Unfortunately, as a result, he was shot and killed at the scene.”

Neither of the soldiers was wounded in the scuffle, he said.
