The Gush Etzion junction has sadly seen many terror attacks. We have to thank G-d that the IDF was quick enough to stop the terrorist here!
Attack at Gush Etzion Junction Thwarted
A terrorist attempted to kill innocent Israelis at a bus stop at the Gush Etzion junction. This is not the first attempt at a terrorist attack in that area. The IDF soldier at the bus stop acted quickly and eliminated the terrorist.
The world will probably circulate a fake story that an Israeli soldier killed an innocent “Palestinian” man. But that would be a complete lie. The truth is that a terrorist ran toward innocent Israelis with a knife ready to stab and kill whoever he could. And yes, the soldier killed him. But since when is it a crime to defend yourself against a murderer coming at you with a knife?
This is what Israel is up against. This example is a microcosm of the greater issue. Israelis just want to live in peace. They wait at bus stops. They are normal people. And then “Palestinian” terrorists come and try to attack, without being attacked first. Without being provoked.
Thank Gd the IDF soldier here acted quickly and killed the terrorist. If he didn’t, who knows how many could have been injured and killed?
