A security guard was very lightly wounded Wednesday morning in a stabbing attack in the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur in Gush Etzion.
The Muslim terrorist arrived at the community by car early Wednesday, opened the door of the security post, and attacked one of the guards in his hand.
Another security guard opened fire and eliminated the terrorist.
IDF forces that arrived at the scene launched a search for possible accomplices.
The wounded guard, Boris Balbrava, 36, from Karmei Tzur, was taken to the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Karem for treatment.
“The security guard got to us after having tried to fight off the terrorist in close hand-to-hand combat,” said Prof. Mosheiff Ram, the head of the Orthopedic Trauma Center at Hadassah.”The terrorist stab him in his palm… I’m optimistic about the palm, but we’re looking into it.”
Balbrava began working as the community’s security guard two weeks ago.
