The two Palestinians who perpetrated the stabbing attack which left an ultra-Orthodox man lightly wounded in Beit Shemesh on Thursday have been identified as Islamist sympathizers who have committed security-related offenses against Israel in the past.

The two men, both of whom are 20 years old, are from the West Bank village of Zurif, not far from Hebron. One of the assailants was jailed from 2012 to 2014 after he was caught with a knife in his possession at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron.
