Citizens and security forces killed a female Palestinian terrorist who attempted to knife Israelis as they waited by a bus stop and a hitch-hiking post, near the Hawara checkpoint just outside the city of Nablus in the West Bank on Sunday.Here is a photo showing her knife::
Among them was former Samaria Council head Gershon Mesika, who ran over the terrorist with his car.
Avigail Shomriyah, 21, said that she had been at the bus stop attempting to hitch a ride to her college, when the terrorist attempted to stab her.
“I turned around and saw a terrorist with a large knife and murderous looking eyes. It was a very large knife. I ran in the direction of the soldiers, she ran after me. Then Gershon ran her over. Then they shot her,” Shomriya said.
Shehab News Agency shows this photo and says that the Israelis planted the knife.
Fatah's Facebook page placed this cartoon next to the photo:
Fatah also quotes an anonymous "eyewitness" claiming that the girl was just trying to cross the street when the "settler" ran over her and that Israeli soldiers planted the knife.
However, the terrorist's father freely admits that she wanted to kill Jews. "Thank God my daughter has done what needs to be done ... I am very proud of her," he said.
The father, who has been imprisoned in Israel, says that his daughter would ask which are the "best knives in the house" for an attack. Her brother also says that she would watch the news with him and say that she wanted to stab Jews.
It is always interesting to see how the stories change in the immediate aftermath of an attack as Palestinians try to figure out which narrative is better for them:- innocent victims or proud terrorists.
The same Fatah page tells its readers to murder the Jew who saved lives by running her over:
