Cpl. T, the Terminator

Cpl. T, who serves in the Shimshon Battalion of the Kfir Brigade, on Thursday night eliminated an Arab terrorist who tried to stab soldiers in Gush Etzion. “He deliberately pulled out a knife to stab a friend who was with me. At that moment I cocked the gun and shot him,” T said. Last week, he killed two terrorists during a similar attack. In that attack, an IDF soldier was injured lightly to moderately.

“While securing the Gush intersection, we noticed the suspect,” Cpl. T described the Thursday night event in Gush Etzion. The terrorist, Malk a-Sharif from Hebron, reached the Gush Etzion junction and turned toward the bus stop going to Alon Shvut. “We called at him to cross the road over to us and when he got to us he pulled out a knife with the intent to stab the friend who was with me. At that moment I cocked the gun and I shot him.”

Kfir Brigade officers commended the rapid response and cool temper of the warrior, who prevented more serious results. According to them, the fact that he is a young warrior, who’s only been in uniform a total of eight months, only two of those in operational duty, did not affect his focused and precise actions in both cases. The Shimshon Battalion to which he belongs has been dealing over the past month with many of the attacks in the Etzion area, north of Hebron.

The Kfir (Lion Cub) Brigade, a.k.a. the 900 Brigade, is the youngest infantry brigade of the IDF, established in late 2005 as part of the 162nd Division of the Central Regional Command.

  1. His identity and location is now public. Why was this not protected. My daughter is in the IDF and I would be more terrified knowing her picture was on social media. He should he given a medal for his bravery and he should be protected and moved to another location.

  2. Bravo Cpl -T. You are one Brave & Alert Person. May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Protect You and Keep you Safe. Shame on those of Persons From the Fifth Columnist Peace Now (More Like Violence Promoters) for not Supporting people Like You Our Safety Protectors. Nissim Moses

  3. Mr. Openheimer, I have hundreds of soldiers like him here in the Colombian Army…we don't waste our time in asking stupid questions before the facts, we just SHOOT, THEN WE ASK period….

    MAZEL TOV for you, heroe of Israel !!!…praying that you will "keep Kicking Asses" for long time to come !!!

  5. Israel was not created in order to disappear—Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom. – President John Kennedy. ( no country in the world would tolerate what the radical Muslims are doing to Israel. There are many Muslims who want to live in peace in Israel. Unfortunately their radical brothers will not work towards peace. Total annihilation of the Jewish nation is their only agenda. This 3rd Intifada is called "the knife intifada". Imagine Barak HUSEIN Obama's daughter's being knifed by those who hate blacks and there are many in the USA who do. Unfortunately this President is pro- Muslim which would be acceptable if they were a peaceful people. Predictions for France are that by 2025 there will b a Muslim President. 20,000 Jews left France since 2014! Go back to the Torah! "And HaShem hardened Pharoah's heart" – what do we Jews have to do for our beloved G-D to end this world wide "anti semitic war" against Israel! It's up to us……

  6. This "hero" must be fortunate/unfortunate to meet so many knife wielding Palestinian youth! How many attacks have there been in the whole of Israel during this period? On a secondary point: it is not really useful to label every violent act 'terrorism'. The term is so widely used for and against the USA and Israeli actions that it is almost meaningless.
