Watch: Terrorist Flees Scene of Tel Aviv Stabbings

Stand for Israel reported to you on today's horrific attack in Israel, in which a terrorist stabbed 17 people aboard a Tel Aviv bus. Yediot Achronot has this video of the terrorist running from the scene and attacking a woman as he flees:
Hamza Muhammed Hassan Matrouk, a 22-year-old from Tulkarm, stabbed 13 people on a bus in central Tel Aviv on Wednesday, wounding four of them seriously before he was chased down, shot and arrested by police in an attack praised by the Islamic militant Hamas group. A new video from the event, the Palestinian can be seen fleeing the scene of the attack - Tel Aviv's Beit Maariv Bridge - while being chased by Israel Prison Service forces, who eventually shot and arrested him. In the video, he can be seen stabbing a pedestrian as he runs. The assault, described by police as a "terror attack," was the latest in a spate of attacks in which Palestinians have used knives, acid and vehicles as weapons in recent months, leaving dead and injured. Police identified the assailant as a Palestinian from the West Bank and said he had entered Israel illegally. During questioning, Hamza Muhammed Hassan Matrouk said he committed the attack because of Operation Protective Edge - Israel's 50 day war with Hamas - and events at the Temple Mount. He also said hew as motivated by watching radical Islamic material that spoke of "reaching paradise."
