A 21-year-old father was murdered while shopping for Shabbat in a Sha’ar Binyamin supermarket north of Jerusalem. Another shopper was wounded.
A Palestinian terrorist attack was reported shortly before 5 PM at an Israeli supermarket in the Sha’ar Binyamin industrial zone in the Binyamin region, north of Jerusalem.
According to a police spokesperson, two young Palestinian terrorists managed to enter the supermarket and stab two Israeli citizens before the terrorists were shot and wounded by an armed citizen.
The 21-year-old shopper who was murdered was identified by the IDF as Sergeant Tuvia Weissman, a combat soldier in the IDF’s Nahal Brigade. A 35-year-old man was moderately-to-seriously wounded after suffering stab wounds to his neck.
“The aisles in the supermarket were packed with people when I suddenly heard people screaming,” an eyewitness at the scene told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “Someone was shouting ‘what are you doing?’ and then I heard the gunshots. When people were running away, I heard babies and women crying,. It was frantic.”
Several shoppers suffered from shock, including a pregnant woman.
The two wounded terrorists were treated at the scene and transported to a hospital.
