Resident of Gilad Farm Yehuda Shimon was an eyewitness to the stabbing at Tapuach junction Tuesday, He related to Arutz Sheva, "The Arab pounced on one of the hitchhikers and shoved him back. The IDF opened fire after he shot at the nearby outpost, and he was down on the ground, still moving. I rushed to the victim to assist until the paramedics showed up. They said he didn't make it. I said 'Shema Yisrael' and closed his eyes."
