Just as Independence Day was drawing to a close, Two terrorists, one with and axe and the other with a knife, succeeded in killing 3 and wounding another 4.
United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Moshe Sa’adon, the head of the Elad chapter for the organization who was one of the first responders to arrive at the scene said, “Unfortunately, one of the people injured in the stabbing incident was pronounced dead at the scene. We had performed CPR on him in an attempt to save his life but were unsuccessful.
In response, the army has tightened its closure of Judea and Samaria.
MDA Paramedic Alon Rizkan said: “This was a very difficult call. When we arrived we realized that this was a complex scene. A 40 year old male was found near a vehicle by Ibn Gvirol traffic circle with serious injuries. We performed medical checks but he had no signs of life and we could only pronounce him dead. I went down the stairs to the nearby park, we performed CPR on a 40 year old male who was unconscious, but in the end had to pronounce him dead.
“Several meters away we found another 40 year old male who also had serious injuries, and he was also pronounced dead after resuscitation efforts. 3 further victims, males of 60 and 35 who were seriously wounded were treated on scene and then conveyed to Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer and Beilinson Hospital, sedated and intubated. A 40 year old male in moderate condition was conveyed to Beilinson Hospital, and a 23 year old male who fought with the terrorists was conveyed in mild condition to hospital,” he said.
