A terrorist armed with explosives, a sub-machine gun, and a knife attempted to carry out an attack and received instant karma.
The terrorist began his attempted attack near near the Tomb of the Patriarchs at Gross Square in Hebron on the morning of May 18. According to the Jewish Press, “Gross Square is named after Asher Aaron Gross who was stabbed and killed by Arab terrorists on July 7, 1983.”
Initial reports indicated that the terrorist had died by his own explosives, but an update provided by an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson gave more clarity to the situation:
“Following the initial report, a terrorist armed with explosives, a Carlo-type sub-machine gun, and a knife a short time ago tried to carry out a combined attack on IDF fighters in the Jewish community in Hebron, in the area of the “Judea” regional division. IDF fighters identified the terrorist approaching them, he tried to shoot and throw an explosive device at them. The fighters responded by firing and neutralizing the terrorist. There are no casualties to our forces.”
No Israeli casualties have been reported.
Attacks against Israel from Palestinian Hamas terrorists have increased in the past several months since Joe Biden took office in the United States. This is no surprise, as Biden and his far-left allies have shown weakness on the issue of the Israel-Palestine conflict, despite the fact that it is clear that the Palestinian government is run by a terrorist group. Luckily for Israel, their defense force and technology are far superior and have succeeded in stopping many attempted terrorist attacks such as this one.
A video shared to Twitter showed the terrorist after he was neutralized. The post, clearly written by a Palestinian sympathizer, reads: “Urgent | A Palestinian youth was wounded by Israeli bullets, for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack in Hebron.” It is typical for pro-Palestine news outlets to characterize their terrorists as innocent civilians and/or youth, in attempts to make Israel look bad.
