JNS: According to United Hatzalah, three people were initially injured by the suspected terrorist.

One victim in his 50s was in critical condition and was transported to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem where he was stabilized by doctors. However, another victim in his 30s, who was stabbed repeatedly in the chest and torso, apparently died of his wounds after being taken to Hadassah.

A third victim was lightly injured and treated at the scene.

The IDF Spokesperson Unit said in a statement that the Palestinian who carried out the terror attack in Adam—a teenager who apparently breached a fence to reach Jewish civilians—was shot and killed by security forces.


21:00 According to initial reports, the Palestinian terrorist was shot dead by armed residents who rushed to the scene after hearing screams.

21:08 An IDF spokesman said three people were hurt in the incident.

21:11 One of the wounded is reported to be in critical condition.

21:16 A spokesman for the United Hatzalah ambulance service said one victim in his 50s is in critical condition and undergoing CPR on his way to hospital, while another in his 30s is in serious but stable condition. Both victims suffered stab wounds to their upper bodies. A third was lightly injured and is being treated at the scene.

21:54 Hamas welcomed the attack, with a spokesman for the terrorist group calling it a “natural reaction to the crimes of the occupation.”

23:00 The terrorist has been named as Mohammed Tarik Youssef, 17, from the Palestinian village of Kobar near Ramallah.  On July 21, 2017, a Palestinian terrorist from Kobar stabbed three members of the Salomon family to death in the nearby Jewish community of Neve Tzuf.
