Two Palestinian Arab terrorists, one of them just a teenager, killed an Israeli woman and wounded another in the Jewish community of Beit Horon north of Jerusalem on Monday.
Unarmed women appear to have become the favorite target of those Palestinians taking part in what has come to be known as the “Stabbing Intifada.”
The fatality in Monday’s attack was named as 24-year-old Shlomit Krigman (pictured), who was attacked while shopping at the local grocery. Krigman had been a youth leader in the community.
Both terrorists were shot and killed by a security guard following a short chase.
Police later found two pipe bombs at the scene, indicating that a much more severe attack had been averted.
