Shooting and Stabbing Attack at Be'er Sheva Bus Station
One person was killed and seven people have been injured in a shooting and stabbing terror attack at Be'er Sheva's Central Bus Station. One of the casualties was seriously injured and four more have suffered moderate wounds. The seventh casualty is lightly wounded, according to Magen David Adom chief Eli Bin.
One terrorist carried out the attack. He was armed with a handgun and knife.
The terrorist shot a soldier and killed him. He took his M-16 semiautomatic assault rifle and began firing it at a group of policemen, four of whom were injured.
Another man was also shot and killed by security forces, in the belief that he was a terrorist. However, he apparently is an Eritrean infiltrator and he may not have had anything to do with the attack.
A large number of Magen David Adom paramedics and police delivered emergency first aid to victims and evacuated them to Soroka hospital.
It is not clear how the armed terrorist succeeded in penetrating into the Central Bus Station, which is under heavy security.
Chief Superintendent Doron Ben Amo of the Be'er Sheva police said that the terrorists were apparently armed with a knife and a handgun. One of the terrorists stabbed a soldier and took his M-16 semiautomatic rifle from him, and then started firing it.
Channel 1 TV initially reported that the casualties were soldiers but then said that four of them are policemen.
