Two Palestinian terrorists stabbed two Israeli women and threw pipe bombs at a grocery store in the West Bank settlement of Beit Horon on Monday night.
On Tuesday morning, Hadassah University Medical Center released a statement to say that one of the victims of the attack, Shlomit Krigman, a 23-year old woman from Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley, had died from her wounds following the attack.
The funeral for Krigman was set to take place Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Her Hamenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem’s Gival Shaul. The funeral was scheduled to be closed to the press.
The Beit Horon community on Tuesday morning expressed its sympathies over Krigman’s death.
“Shlomit was loved and known, during her national service she served as a youth group leader for the Bnei Akiva branch in Beit Horon. Over the past year, Shlomit was living with her grandparents in the Krigman family home in the community,” the statement read.
The other victim, 58, who was moderately wounded in the stabbing remained hospitalized in the capital’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center on Tuesday.
During the attack, cashier Mordechai Shalem used a large metal shopping cart to stop them from entering the store, saving the lives of those who were inside.
The assailants fled from the store in the direction of homes in the settlement, but within moments a security guard shot and killed them.
