As Israel’s war against Hamas continues, the nation was given another terrible reminder that the threat of terror attacks within Israel remains very real. The Times of Israel tells us more:

An elderly woman was killed and 17 people were injured, including at least seven children and teenagers, in a car-ramming and stabbing attack by two Palestinian terrorists in the central Israel city of Ra’anana early on Monday afternoon.

During the attack, the perpetrators — two West Bank Palestinians who were working in Israel illegally — seized three vehicles and rammed pedestrians in several locations in the city, also stabbing one or more of their victims, according to police, medics, and eyewitnesses.

Meir Hospital said a woman in her 70s, who arrived in critical condition, succumbed to her wounds. She was later named as Edna Bluestein, 79, from Ra’anana.
