The attacks on Israel continue as this violent week comes to an end. This time, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports, a young IDF soldier guarding the Jewish settlement of Beit El was seriously injured when a terrorist stabbed him and bashed his head in with a rock:
The Israel Defense Forces said a fight broke out between the two after the Palestinian attacker broke into the military position near Beit El, outside Ramallah, where Israeli forces have been searching for the terrorist who committed a shooting attack on Thursday, killing two soldiers and seriously injuring a third serviceman and a civilian woman.
“During [the fight], a terrorist struck the soldier with a rock from a short range,” the army said.
The military later added that further investigation revealed that the assailant had stabbed the soldier as well...
The 21-year-old soldier was taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem in serious condition.
The serviceman was unconscious and hooked up to a ventilator. Doctors said he was in life-threatening condition...
Please pray for this young man's recovery, and for an end to the terrorist violence that has surged in the Holy Land.
