Gush Etzion junction may have a mall next to it as well as being a major thoroughfare , but that has not stopped muslim arab terrorists from trying to kill Jewish residents of the Gush or the IDF that is stationed there to protect them.
Today’s attack that occurred at the Gush Etzion junction involved a terrorist that got out of a passing car and attempted to stab a reserves soldier that was stationed there. The driver sped south towards Hevron and the terrorist was shot and killed by the alert soldier.
By evening the driver was still not caught and thankfully life returned back to normal for Gush Etzion.
These sorts of attacks have come and gone for the junction which is in the middle of a huge upgrade admist the building of a new highway down to Kiryat Arba.
The real question is whether or not the inclusion of a Muslim Brotherhood affiliated party into the coalition has been the trigger for the present wave of terror. If it continues, Bennet risks alienating even more of the country.
