Israeli stabbed to death in West Bank attack, assailant on the loose
An Israeli man was stabbed to death in a terror attack at a bus station outside the West Bank settlement of Ariel on Monday afternoon.
The Palestinian assailant arrived at the bus station on foot. He stabbed the Israeli civilian and fled. An IDF officer who saw the attack pursued the terrorist and hit him with his car. The assailant was still able to flee the scene.
The victim, Itamar Ben Gal, is from the Har Bracha settlement and taught in the yeshiva there.
IDF soldiers are now searching the area.
"We will bring them [the terrorist] to justice," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the start of the Likud faction meeting.
