A pregnant woman was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack in Tekoa near Jerusalem on Monday morning.
The terrorist, around 17 years old, infiltrated Tekoa through an existing breach in its fence and arrived shortly after 10am to a second-hand clothes store in the Tekoa industrial area.
The manager of the store turned to the young attacker to ask him what he was looking for. In response, he drew out a knife and stabbed 30-year-old Michal Fruman, one of the employees, in her chest.
He then fled back towards the breach in the fence. Security forces ordered him to stop, but he ignored them, at which point he was shot and critically wounded by an armed civilian. He was taken to the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Fruman, who is 18 weeks pregnant, was taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in moderate and stable condition. Her unborn baby was unharmed and there was no risk to her life.
