Israeli Woman, 23, Dead After Palestinian Stab Attack at Market

One of the women seriously injured in a stabbing attack at a West Bank supermarket has died.

Shlomit Krigman, 23, died of her injuries early on Tuesday morning. Krigman, who grew up in Shadmot Mehola located in the Beit She’an Valley, had been in the Beit Horon settlement, located between Jerusalem and Modiin, on Monday to visit her grandparents. She had served as a Bnei Akiva youth group leader in Beit Horon, home to about 300 famlies, and was considered a resident by those who lived there.

Her funeral was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. A recent graduate of Ariel University, she is survived by her parents and six siblings.

Pollard avoids giving speech at Presidents Conference, citing parole violation fears A second woman injured in the attack, age 58, remains hospitalized at Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Two male Palestinian assailants attacked the women at the store in Beit Horon. The assailants were shot dead by the store’s security guard. Security officials searching the area following the attack found several homemade bombs had been planted as part of a planned attack; they were later neutralized by sappers.

The assailants, one from a nearby Palestinian village, are believed to have entered the settlement by coming up from a nearby riverbed and jumping the community’s fence.

In a statement issued following the attack, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin said: “My thoughts and prayers are with those wounded and fighting for their lives after the severe terror attack at Beit Horon. These difficult times are fraught with confrontation and we will overcome. We will continue to fight against terrorism and the incitement which drives it. In the face of terror, we choose life.”
