Israeli Stabbed to Death by Palestinian Terrorist

A Palestinian terrorist stabbed an Israeli man to death at a bus stop near a West Bank settlement on Monday before fleeing the scene, Israeli officials said.

The military said an army officer chased the assailant after the stabbing at a bus stop near the entrance to Ariel, hitting the attacker with his vehicle, but the attacker managed to get away. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the Israeli man died from the stabbing wounds shortly thereafter.

Israeli media reported that the Palestinian was armed with two knives. He was later identified as Itamar Ben-Gal, 29, a father of four from the nearby settlement of Har Bracha.

Channel 2 News aired footage from the scene showing the attacker crossing a busy road and then lunging at the man, taking him by surprise.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered his condolences and said security forces are “currently chasing the murderers.”

Last month, an Israeli was killed in a drive-by shooting near a settlement outpost in the West Bank.
