A 30-year-old pregnant woman been seriously injured in a stabbing attack in Tekoa, south of Jerusalem.
The victim is being given emergency treatment at the scene for multiple stab wounds to her upper body. Magen David Adom paramedics managed to stabilize her, and she was evacuated to Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek hospital in moderate-to-serious condition.
The pregnant woman was stabbed after the terrorist broke into a clothing store where she was working in Tokoa, located in the east of the Gush Etzion bloc.
An armed civilian shot the terrorist dead at the scene.
The stabbing is the latest in a string of similar attacks in the area south of Jerusalem.
Yesteday (Sunday) another woman – 38-year-old mother-of-six Dafna Meir – was brutally murdered in front of her children by an Arab terrorist who broke into her home in Otniel, several miles south of Gush Etzion.
That attack itself followed by just minutes an attack foiled at the nearby Jewish town of Kiryat Arba, when security forces nabbed an Arab woman armed with a knife.
