On the anniversary of the Coastal Road Massacre, which I wrote about yesterday, a Palestinian terrorist broke into a Jewish home on the West Bank and stabbed five members of a family, including a one-month old baby, to death while they slept:
Five family members were found murdered in their residence in the West Bank Itamar settlement Friday overnight, after a suspected terrorist broke and entered the house and stabbed the five to death. Two children managed to escape and survived the attack, Army Radio reported.
A Magen David Adom team that arrived at the scene at 1:00 a.m. announced a couple, their 11-year old child, 3-year-old toddler, and a one-month baby girl dead from stabbing wounds.
Palestinian media on Saturday reported that a faction of Fatah’s al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade claimed responsibility for the stabbing incident.
Palestinians in Gaza broke out in celebration at the news:
Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah on Saturday poured out on the streets to celebrate the terror attack in West Bank settlement of Itamar, in which five family members were murdered in their sleep.
Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying their joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”
The Palestinian Authority has condemned the attack.
