An 18 year-old American tourist was shot dead by a Palestinian terrorist on Thursday in the West Bank.
The shooting and a separate knife attack in Tel Aviv left five people dead today at the hands of two Palestinian terrorists.
According to Fox News, two others were also killed in the shooting that killed the American teenager. An Israeli man was rushed to the hospital, where he later died, and the other victim was a Palestinian bystander. Many others were injured, including some Americans.
The American teen, who has not yet been identified, was declared dead at the scene.
“The murderous terror has struck Gush Etzion and Tel Aviv,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, according to Ynetnews. “My heart is with the families of the murdered and I send my wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded. Whoever condemned the attacks in France needs to condemn the attacks in Israel. It’s the same terror. Whoever does not do this is a hypocrite and blind.”
The shots were reportedly fired from a car by a terrorist, who eventually crashed into another vehicle. He then ran out of his car and began firing more shots, but he was quickly shot by Israeli security forces and was taken into custody.
