The three terrorists were identified as Ahmed Rajeh Zakarneh, Muhammad Ahmed Kmail, and Ahmed Najeh Abu al-Rub – all from the town of Kabatiya in the Jenin area.

All three assailants were shot dead at the scene. Their explosives did not detonate and were later neutralized by a police bomb disposal team.

Border Police Cpl. Hadar Cohen, 19, died of her wounds shortly after being rushed to Hadassah-University Medical Center at Mount Scopus.

Hamas “welcomed” the terrorist attack at the time, saying it constituted a “severe blow” to Israeli security measures.
