An Israeli man, at home with his family, was injured in a terror attack in the West Bank today. The Jerusalem Post's Tovah Lazaroff reports that two terrorists attacked the man at his home before being neutralized by other soldiers:
Roi Harrell opened the door to his home early Wednesday morning to find two teenage Palestinian assailants waiting to attack him with wooden sticks and a knife.
“I opened the door with a satchel in my hand and I saw the two [teenagers] wearing dark clothing and wooden sticks in their hands. They jumped on me and pushed their way into the house,” said Harrell who lives in the West Bank settlement of Eli.
“I fought with them inside the house. They got close to a bedroom,” Harrell said as he described the 7 a.m. attack in which he was lightly wounded for Army Radio.
“After a few minutes I was able to push them back outside even as they were hitting me with sticks,” Harrell said...
Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated Harrell to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Harrell said that after the attack, he found a 20-centimeter knife stuck into the door of his home.
“We have to remember that I am not the only one who fought for his home. We are all in the midst of a battle for our homes.”
