On Monday night, four Israeli men in their 20s were shot by a Palestinian gunman in the West Bank, outside the settlement of Shvut Rachel. 26-year-old, Malachi Rosenfield later died from his wounds. No organisation has claimed responsibility for the terror attack.
In a separate incident on Monday morning, a Palestinian woman attacked a female IDF soldier, stabbing her in the neck at the Rachel checkpoint near Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem.
The attacker was not known to security forces, and was found to be in possession of two other knives. During questioning by the Shin Bet, the assailant said she arrived at the crossing to kill a soldier.
Monday night’s attack marks the fourth in four days and the sixth terror attack since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan two weeks ago.
