Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah paid a condolence call on Friday to the family of a 16-year-old Palestinian girl who was killed last week after attempting to stab a number of hitchikers in the northern West Bank.

Citizens and security forces killed the female Palestinian terrorist, Asharqat Katani, who attempted to knife Israelis as they waited by a bus stop and a hitch-hiking post, near the Hawara checkpoint just outside the city of Nablus in the West Bank on Sunday.

Among them was former Samaria Council head Gershon Mesika, who ran over the terrorist with his car.

He had stopped at the bus stop to pick up hitch-hikers.

“I heard someone yelling, "terrorist, terrorist!” he later explained.

“I looked up. I saw someone large running after a young woman. I didn’t think twice, I turned the steering wheel to the right, I pressed my foot onto the gas, and ran her over,” he said.

"She fell over and then security forces shot her,” he said.
