A father and his two adult children were stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist at their Sabbath table where they had gathered to celebrate the birth of a grandchild.
Ten people were gathered at the Sabbath table on Friday night, waiting for more guests to arrive, in Halamish, also known as Neve Tsuf, in Samaria. 19-year old Palestinian, Omar al-Abed, burst into the home and immediately began stabbing people. He killed the father, in his 70’s, and his adult son and daughter, in their 30’s. Abed continued his stabbing spree but one of the women managed to gather the children in a room and lock the door, after which she called the police.
The horrifying incident came to an end when a neighbor who serves in an elite IDF canine special forces unit heard the screams and ran to help. He shot Abed through the window, wounding him.
“I understood immediately what was happening — I saw the terrorist and shot him through the window,” he said to Channel 2 news.
