2 Palestinians Shot after Stab Attack Leaves 1 Israeli Killed, 1 Injured

Two 14-year-old Palestinians were shot and critically injured after carrying out a stab attack that left one Israeli killed and one injured in the Rami Levi supermarket located in the Shaare Benyamin industrial complex northwest of Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri said that two Palestinians “infiltrated” the illegal Israeli settlement and entered the supermarket before stabbing the two Israelis, aged 17 and 35.

Both Palestinians were shot and critically injured by an armed civilian present at the scene, al-Samri said.

The police spokesperson initially reported both Palestinians dead.

The 35-year-old Israeli died from stab wounds in the upper body and torso shortly after.

Local sources identified the Palestinians as Ayham Bassam Ibrahim Subih, and Omar Salim Rimawi, both 14-year-old residents of the Ramallah-area town of Beituniya.

Israeli emergency medical service Magen David Adom said medics treated one Israeli in severe condition and another who was in moderate condition. The two were transferred to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.

An Israeli settler in his forties was stabbed and injured in a Rami Levi supermarket in the same illegal settlement on Nov. 6.

A wave of small-scale attacks carried out by Palestinian individuals in the occupied Palestinian territory — predominantly on Israeli military targets — have increasing targeting illegal settlements this month.
