Young father of a baby murdered during Shabbat shopping
Two Arab terrorists conducted a stabbing attack late Thursday afternoon at a Rami Levy supermarket at the Sha'ar Binyamin Industrial Zone in Samaria, located just northeast of Jerusalem.
Two people, one aged 36 and the other 21, were wounded in the attack, one critically and the other moderately with both suffering stab wounds to the upper body. The 21-year-old victim later succumbed to his wounds.
Magen David Adom (MDA) teams provided treatment to the victims at the scene prior to evacuating one to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital and Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.
Shaare Tzedek's trauma unit reported it received the 21-year-old male victim from the attack, who was in serious condition and unconscious. The medical team struggled to save the young victim's life, but eventually were forced to pronounce his death.
Hadassah Mount Scopus reported the 36-year-old victim as in moderate condition, stable and fully conscious.

MDA paramedics described that when they arrived on the scene the 21-year-old victim was lying in the aisles of the supermarket, and the 35-year-old was likewise found between the aisles.
