The attack in Ramle was similar in style to that carried out Wednesday in Jerusalem. The two girls, both age 13, waited for the guard to request identification, and then drew kitchen knives from their school backpacks and stabbed him in the leg and arm.

The guard remained conscious throughout the incident, according to senior Magen David Adom paramedic Shlomo Elkasalsi, who was first to arrive on the scene. Elkasalsi was walking around the mall when he heard the victim shouting there were terrorists. He provided initial treatment for leg and arm wounds to the guard until other medics arrived with ambulances.

Medics soon arrived to evacuate the security guard, in his 20s, from the scene to Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center in Tzrifin.

Both terrorists were neutralized by security forces, arrested and taken into custody. “We came to kill Jews,” one of the girls told investigators, making it clear their intentions were to carry out an attack of wider dimensions.

Both are residents of Ramle, a city with a mixed Jewish-Arab population. One of the terrorists is living with her family in the Jo’arish neighborhood. The second is from a nomadic Arab family that recently moved to the city.

“Heightened security continues in the area after the attack,” Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.

  1. In fact 80% of the latest wave of knifers are under 16 or 17 .they actually come from middle class and well to do homes. How do they get them to do this ? they(their adults leaders ) go on facebook and tell those kids how great it is to be a martyr how much pleasure and pride they will give their families if they become martyrs.and so on. and then they show them comments of educated Jews writing to this paper things like " just kill all muslims,or just gas those tunnels, or eliminate them!"etc..etc…. now they tell these kids You see those "bad" jews ? they want you dead! yes someone there works on propoganda we clever jews just poopoo the idea : nah it wont work…we say…

  2. All kids need hope for a good future and these and all other terrorists are denied it by their leaders who enrich themsleves and impoverish their own countries. We need to swamp them with videos of young smart kids who work and who have attained success. They have to see there is an alternative.

  3. we make our own problems….all arabs should be suddenly and without warning searched and if found with weapons put in solitary confinement for 24 hours a day for 10 years…..no tv no computers no phone no cell mate never out of the cell…..when they get out they would NEVER commit another crime cause they would rather be beaten and tortured than BORED !!!
    also every time someone stabbed….gaza should be closed down (NO trucks allowed in for one day for each stabbing….)and if jew seriously hurt or killed then one day for each jew hurt or killed with gaza getting NO electric no water no fuel no anything!!! and five million dollars taken from palestinian taxes and given to family of dead jew!!! also when someone doing stabbing they should be SHOT DEAD no matter what their age or if female….shoot them dead….or if they have bomb on them!
    we have to be serious and tough or this terrorism will go on and on and get worse and worse!!! but if we get tough the terror will lessen and stop….such as feed their heart to pigs if the kill someone (shoot them dead/cut out their heart and feed it to pigs and cremate their body and throw ashes into sewer)…….
    arabs will stop terrorism!!! oh but more important that jews die than have arabs insulted !!!

  4. The minds of the so called palestinians, is filled with hate, by their teachers, imams and parents.
    Time for Israel to warn these people that if any more such attacks occur, they will be arested and locked up for life
    There must be no mercy for those who poison young minds.

  5. Gaza.
    Why is Israel still supplying the murderers with water and electricty food, and building materials?
    This should be cut off and teach them not to start with Israel.
    Let them suffer and freeze in winter
    The Hamas leaders live in beautiful homes far from the "battle zone"
    Of course, they get billions of dollars in support to rebuild Gaza.
    Where is the money going to?
    Abbas is a multi millionair, the Hmas leaders. like Arafat, have stolen billions, but keep their peoplr in sqalor, and, of cotse, the aversage Gazan lives in poverty, while the leaders are stealing from them
