This morning, two Arab girls, one 14 and one 16 attempted a terrorist attack close to the Mahane Yehuda market (the Shuk) in Jerusalem. After staking out the area, they attacked and managed to lightly injure a 70 year old Palestinian resident of Bethlehem, who they mistook for a Jew. Police and passer by were quickly on the scene and both assailants, who were armed with scissors, were shot. The 16 year-old died on the spot and the 14 year-old was seriously injured and is listed in critical condition.
Security cameras showed the girls casing the light rail bus stop across the street from the market:
Security footage captured the pathetic attack:
A security guard lightly was injured by shrapnel from friendly fire. As soon as I heard of the attack, I walked 5 minutes to the shuk and had an Aroma Ice Coffee (with a shot of espresso).
Hours later, an Israeli soldier was killed and two others were injured at a gas station on route 443 near the town of Modiin. The Palestinian terrorist who carried out that attack was shot dead by security forces at the scene.
What did the Palestinians accomplish today? Less than nothing. The Israeli death toll in the stupidfada stands at 21. The Palestinian death toll? 81.
