Eden Atias is the name of the IDF soldier who was murdered this morning. He joined the IDF 3 weeks ago. He was 19 years old, a resident of Natzrath (Nazareth) Illit.
The terrorist’s name is Hussein Jawadara, of Jenin. Both of the terrorist’s brothers are imprisoned in Israeli prisons for terrorist activities. One of them murdered a Jew when he was only 15.
Doctors at the hospital fought for Atias’s life but were unable to save him.
The soldier was stabbed all over his body, including his neck, as he slept on bus number 823 from Nazareth, at the central bus station in Afula.
The 15-year-old Arab terrorist entered Israel illegally. He was captured by bus passengers and turned over to security forces.
The attack weapon, a knife, was recovered at the scene.
