Palestinian Terrorist Kills Three Israelis Outside Jerusalem

Two Israeli security guards and a policeman were shot dead by a Palestinian at a checkpoint in the West Bank town of Har Adar on Tuesday morning.

The terrorist, from a neighboring Palestinian village north west of Jerusalem, was also shot and killed.

In a statement by Israeli police, the Palestinian is said to have “aroused the suspicion of security personnel” at the checkpoint to enter the settlement on Tuesday morning.

He then “raised his shirt, pulled out a pistol and shot… from close range.”

Israeli authorities named the fallen police officer as 20-year-old Solomon Gabariya. Yussef Utman and Or Arish were the security guards killed in the attack.

A fourth, unnamed Israeli is said to have been severely injured.

According to Israeli media reports, the murderer does not fit the usual young and unmarried profile for an attacker. He is said to have been 37, married with four children, and in possession of an Israeli work permit.
