An eyewitness said that “a terrorist came with a knife and stabbed a soldier. Other soldiers came and shot him.” Video footage from the scene shows the great panic at the central station, after the stabbing and shooting. A second soldier was slightly injured in the gunfire exchange.

A soldier who witnessed the incident said that “the terrorist got off a bus near a shuttle of soldiers wearing civilian clothes, and then stabbed the young man.”

Border Guard soldier Shilo confronted the terrorist. “I disarmed the terrorist’s knife,” said Shilo. “They told me to move and they shot him with two bullets.”

Ahmed, an eyewitness to the attack, said that: “I saw that the young man wanted to get on the bus, and then the terrorist ran after him and started stabbing him. I ran into the central station, and then I saw that they started shooting at him.”

Agam, another eyewitness to the incident, said that: “The terrorist was inside the bus station. Suddenly shots rang out, and everyone started running.” Another eyewitness said: “I heard shots and ran into the freezer of a bakery. We were in the freezer for 15 minutes. They didn’t know what happened.”

A report of the incident was received at the Magen David Adom call center in the Negev region at 8:40 a.m. MDA medics and paramedics began providing medical treatment to the 20-year-old soldier at the scene and then evacuated him to Soroka Hospital.

It should be noted that the terrorist who attacked and murdered Warrant Officer Uri Moyal at the Kama junction near Beersheva two weeks ago was also a resident of Rahat, which has a significant number of Palestinians from Gaza, Judea and Samaria who married into Bedouin families.

That terrorist won’t be part of any future swap.

There are Bedouins who are friendly to Israel and serve in the IDF, and then there are some who are not too friendly.

Was this Palestinian acting within International law when he tried to murder innocent Jews?
