Islamic Jihad Claims Responsibility for Gush Etzion Attack

The Islamic Jihad terrorist group has taken responsibility for the deadly terrorist attack this evening outside the town of Alon Shvut in the Gush Etzion region.

A 25-year-old woman was murdered and two other people were injured in the attack, during which the terrorist first attempted to run over his victims before getting out his car and stabbing them. He was shot and fatally wounded by a security guard.

The claim of responsibility follows reports that the terrorist, identified as Maher Hamdi al-Hashalmoun, was affiliated with the Iranian-sponsored Islamist terror group.
