Israeli Soldier Killed by Terrorist on Bus

Sometimes terrorists use knives:

This morning (November 13, 2013), a Palestinian terrorist stabbed and killed an IDF soldier at the Central Bus Station in the northern city of Afula. The soldier was 19-year-old Pvt. Eden Atias, from the Israeli city of Nazareth Illit.

Pvt. Atias was wearing an IDF uniform and was headed to a military base at the time of the attack. The soldier was severely injured and evacuated to a nearby hospital, where he died of his wounds. The terrorist was immediately detained and transferred to security forces for questioning.

Our prayers are with the family of the victim.
