A Palestinian terrorist armed with a knife was killed Friday morning after infiltrating the settlement of Beit Hagai, in the Southern Hebron Hills.
According to reports, the man entered the community with the intent of stabbing local residents. Two residents who were on security duty confronted the man and questioned him as to his purpose there.
In response, the man brandished a knife and attempted to stab them. After a short scuffle, the attacker was shot and killed by one of the men. One of the residents was reportedly very lightly wounded by the terrorist.
