Palestinian terrorist murders Israeli woman, shoots at kids

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated an Israeli town and tried to murder everyone in site:

An Israeli woman was murdered and five others wounded, including a young teenage girl seriously, after a terrorist infiltrated the community Hermesh located between Mevo Dotan and Bakka al Gharbiya in north Samaria late Tuesday night. [...]

According to initial reports the terrorist ran inside the community not far from homes firing shots at residents before soldiers who reached the scene shot and killed him.

Israeli radio reports that one 12-year-old Israeli girl was murdered by the Palestinian Islamic murderer, and a 14-year-old girl is in critical condition. This is the kind of Palestinian terrorist activity that you'll never hear on the French or Brasilian media: only suicide bombings get noticed, and then again, many times you get the impression that the Jews clearly deserved it because of the "occupation".

An Israeli woman was murdered and five others wounded, including a young teenage girl seriously, after a terrorist infiltrated the community Hermesh located between Mevo Dotan and Bakka al Gharbiya in north Samaria late Tuesday night.

Officials at the community refused to divulge whether the woman who died of her wounds shortly after and the teenage girl who was wounded were members of the same family.

According to initial reports the terrorist ran inside the community not far from homes firing shots at residents before soldiers who reached the scene shot and killed him.

A couple in their fifties suffered moderate wounds and two soldiers were lighly wounded in the attack. The young girl was airlifted to Rambam Hospital, the others were taken to Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera.

Residents were ordered to remain in their homes as security forces searched after reports were received that a second terrorist may be inside the community. Security officials sealed off the entire area and are also searching near the village Yabed where the terrorists are believed to have come from.

The infiltration occurred at 10.30. On receiving reports Judea and Samaria emergency and rescue teams reached the community to treat the wounded, as security forces sealed off the area.

Eli Mualem head of security in the region told the Jerusalem Post that the terrorist ran and fired shots at residents walking in the community. He denied initial reports that claimed that a terrorist succeeded in entering a home and shooting at residents.
