Appraisal: Sde Avraham Stabbing was an Attack

Security forces said, Monday afternoon, that a break-in at a home in Sde Avraham, eight kilometers from Israel's border with Gaza, was a terror attack. At first, it appeared to be a criminally-related break-in.

The unidentified intruder - who apparently came through a hole in the Gaza security fence - fled after lightly wounding a girl who discovered him. The Carob Brigade of the Kfir anti-terror battalion responded to the scene and gave chase, shooting him to death after he refused to stop.
