Neve Daniel

An Israeli jogger was injured late Tuesday afternoon in an Arab terror attack on a road between two Jewish communities in Judea, near Neve Daniel.

Tomer Ditor, 28, is a student and resident of Rosh Tzurim in Gush Etzion. He was jogging on Derech Avot, the road between the community of Elazar and Neve Daniel, when he was stabbed.


Ditor was wounded in the shoulder, according to a paramedic with Hatzolah emergency medical response service. He was treated at the scene and then rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

“A wounded civilian arrived at the entrance to the community of Neve Daniel in Gush Etzion, reporting a stabbing. Forces are searching the area,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

The attacker fled the scene following the attack, running towards the Arab village of Kfar Nachlin, local sources said. IDF soldiers began searching the village for the stabber on Tuesday evening.

The Gush Etzion communities of Rosh Tzurim, Alon Shvut, Elazar, Giv’a Hatzehova, Neve Daniel, Geva’ot and Beitar have been placed on alert.

  1. Why is someone jogging in that area?? Sorry, but unless one is armed, I personally feel that this is NOT the place to jog. In the areas of Gush Etzion, Efrat and Tekoa I feel one should be extra careful. B’H he wasn’t seriously injured!! But then I live in Netivot where we have rockets…. *sigh* Hashem ya’azor. Just my opinion.
