The Moment an Israeli Soldier Breaks Down After Jewish Soldier is Stabbed to Death by a Palestinian

The Moment an Israeli Soldier Breaks Down After Jewish Soldier is Stabbed to Death by a Palestinian

It is a shame that the Obama Administration so routinely disrespects Israel. Every day, Israelis wake up and are filled with the knowledge that their tiny country is surrounded by nations who swear that they have no right to exist. Unfortunately, random violence is all-too-common in Israel and this series of photos show the turmoil and heartbreak of an Israeli soldier who must once again confront the ugliness of this conflict.


This is the moment a female Israeli soldier broke down in tears after a comrade was knifed to death at a West Bank petrol station.

Pictures show the inconsolable woman being led away from the scene alongside a road between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Reports have emerged that a Palestinian stabbed an Israeli soldier in the stomach and lightly wounded two women before he was shot dead.

Gunfire from the troops hit a passing car, slightly injuring its Israeli driver.

The incident happened on a day of rapidly unfolding violence in which two Palestinian girls attacked and slightly wounded an elderly man with scissors in Jerusalem before a policeman shot them both, killing one

The petrol station incident happened on the side of a road regularly used by Israelis to drive between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

On the same day a Palestinian was also shot dead near the West Bank city of Nablus after approaching soldiers with a knife, the military said.

The Palestinian health ministry said the shot Palestinian was 16. It said an 18-year-old Palestinian woman was critically wounded in the incident, but had no further details.

The attack in Jerusalem occurred on Jaffa Road, a busy downtown street near the market. Two Palestinian girls, one aged 14 and the other 16, used scissors to stab and slightly wound a 70-year-old man, who turned out to be Palestinian, not Israeli.

The incidents occurred a day before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was due to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories to discuss ways to try to stem the violence.

Eighty-six Palestinians have been killed in the spate of violence since October 1, some while carrying out attacks and others in clashes with Israeli forces.

Twenty Israelis and an American student have been killed by Palestinians, either in stabbings, shootings or purposefully run down by vehicles.

It is the worst violence to strike the region since the Gaza war last year, fueling talk of a new Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, against Israel’s occupation.

The first intifada lasted from 1987-1993 and the second from 2000-2005, although both were far more intense and deadly than the current violence.

May all of us keep Israel in our prayers and hope that the days soon comes when their enemies are thwarted and our so-called leaders have the courage to be half the friend to Israel as Israel is to us.
