Israeli woman stabbed to death by Palestinian terrorist

A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and killed Hadar Buchris (pictured above), 21, as she stood at a bus stop at the Gush Etzion junction in the West Bank.

IDF forces who responded to Sunday’s attack immediately shot and killed the suspected stabber, who was identified as Atzam Tuabata, a 34-year-old resident of Beit Fajar, near Bethlehem in the West Bank.

According to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), Tuabata did not have a criminal record.

Magen David Adom paramedic Zaki Yahav said that when he arrived at the scene he saw “a young woman in her twenties lying unconscious with stab wounds to her upper body on the sidewalk near the bus stop.”

“People at the site had begun to provide first aid and they were trying to stop the bleeding. We quickly moved her into the ambulance and evacuated her to the hospital on a respirator,” Yahav said.

Buchris was pronounced dead at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The head of Shaare Zedek’s trauma unit, Doctor Ofer Marin said Buchris had multiple stab wounds in her head and chest and was not breathing and did not have a pulse when she arrived. The hospital’s medical staff was unable to revive her, Marin said.
