Palestinian terrorists murder family of five, including 3 children, in Israeli town of Itamar (Residents in Gaza town of Rafah celebrate)

Palestinian terrorists infiltrated the Israeli city of Itamar, southeast of Nablus, early Shabbat morning and stabbed five family members to death – including children aged 11, 3, and a baby girl.  The family was asleep when the terrorist entered. (Three of the family’s children, age two, six and 12, are reported to be still alive.)

Though shots were heard shortly after the attack, the terrorists apparently were able to flee.  IDF Forces were quickly deployed in the area to assist in the search for the assailants.

According to an unverified report, Fatah’s military wing – the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – claimed responsibility for the attack.

Paramedic Kabaha Muayua was among the first responders at the site and described the horrific scene he encountered.

“We could not help the first four stab victims. Following an inspection of the scene I spotted an infant of about three who still had a pulse. We engaged in lengthy resuscitation efforts but had to pronounce him dead,” he said. “The murder scene was shocking. Kids’ toys right next to pools of blood.”

Meanwhile, Hamas applauded the attack and, some residents of Gaza were seen celebrating the attack.

According to YNet:

Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.

Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”

A Palestinian man offers sweets to Hamas policemen in the streets of the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah to celebrate the terrorist attack which killed five Israelis in the town of Itamar.

  1. “Waiting for a report on this atrocity from Harriet Sherwood at The Guardian”

    Five Israeli settlers die in “brutal” attack

  2. No comments allowed below Hattie the Hen’s latest travesty against “soft target” Israel. Quelle surprise.

    Have you are source for the photograph? I’m surprised that there isn’t more jubilation.

  3. Horrible tragedy and I hope the perpetrators are swiftly brought to justice. However, in interest of honest reporting, I would not characterise Itamar as an “Israeli city” or “Israeli town”, since it’s not located on the territory of the State of Israel.

  4. just wanted to add that I’m not too surprised by the sick reaction from Gaza. What else to expect from people who celebrated and danced on the streets on 9/11…

  5. Al,

    “However, in interest of honest reporting, I would not characterise Itamar as an ‘Israeli city’ or ‘Israeli town’, since it’s not located on the territory of the State of Israel.”

    …and the horse you rode in on. A family of Jews on their own land (Palestine, the indigenous land of the one and only true Palestinian nation, the Jewish nation; so-called “Palestinians” are Arabs, Arab settler-colonist invaders) is brutally murdered, and you call for a report on it to be in sync with the anti-Zionist narrative! What the heck is wrong with you people?!

  6. Ziontruth,

    I don’t want to argue as to who were the real invaders on this land, since it depends how far in the past you want to go. What I would argue as since this town is not located on the territory of the State of Israel, as accepted by the State of Israel itself, it can not be fairly described as “Israeli city”. Now, it may happen that after the peace treaty with PA it will end up within Israeli borders but we can’t say that for sure now.

    For the record, I’m as much Zionist as a next guy insofar as I support independent Jewish state with defensible borders.
