A Palestinian suspected of attempting to carry out a stabbing attack was shot and killed by an Israeli citizen on Wednesday.
An Israeli settler and right-wing activist identified himself as the shooter and said he was driving to work when a Palestinian armed with a knife attempted to open the door of his vehicle. The Israeli then exited his vehicle and shot the Palestinian.
“A few meters before Bitot Junction, a terrorist jumped at my car and tried to open the door and hurt me and my daughter,” claimed Joshua Sherman, who works for the Union of the Right-Wing Parties. “I went outside and with the help of a driver who was behind me we neutralized the terrorist.”
