A Palestinian Arab man on Tuesday morning went on a rush hour terror rampage that left three Israelis dead and three others wounded.
The terrorist arrived at the gate to the industrial zone of the large Jewish settlement of Ariel. Many Palestinian Arabs line up there each morning hoping to find work. When the terrorist reached the security guard for inspection, he pulled a knife and stabbed the guard.
The terrorist then fled across the street to a nearby gas station, stabbed two more Israeli men, one of whom was declared dead at the scene, and then stole a vehicle and fled.
A short distance later, the terrorist rammed the vehicle into an Israeli pedestrian, believed to be the other fatality, before purposefully crashing into other Israeli vehicles.
He then exited the vehicle with his knife and was shot by security forces. An additional two Israelis were injured in the car crash.
Doctors fought to save the lives of four victims in serious-to-critical condition, but one later succumbed to his injuries. The others are listed as stable, but remain in serious condition.
