The terror attack in Beit Horon, where the late Shlomit Krigman was murdered Monday and Adina Cohen was injured, ended with the termination of the Arab terrorists by Akhsan Kherev, a Druze security guard who arrived on the scene. Speaking to radio station FM103, Kherev said he heard local residents shouting there were terrorists near the grocery store.
“I started running towards the grocery store, people told me they had gone in the direction of the fence. I started to run again, I saw two terrorists hiding behind cardboard boxes near the fence. I circled them and got within 15 feet of them. One of the terrorist threw at me three or four pipe bombs that didn’t explode. Both of them attacked me with knives, so I eliminated them. There was another security man nearby who helped me.”
“I’ve been four years on the job,” said Kherev. “I’m a Druze from Maghar village up north, married, father of two. I served in Shchem, I’m familiar with all these problems. I don’t wish to discuss the security situation.”
When Swedish FM Margot Wallström and US Ambassador Dan Shapiro count this case as yet another Israeli “extrajudicial execution,” they should mention the pipe bombs and the knives.
