Kifah Ghneimat and Iyad Fataftah - Palestinian terrorists who attacked and stabbed two women, Kristine Luken - an American Christian tourist, and British Israeli Kay Wilson, on Dec. 18, 2010, as they were hiking in the Mata forest, near Beit Shemesh. Luken was brutally stabbed to death and Wilson was severely injured. Wilson survived by remaining still so the terrorists assumed she was dead. After the terrorists fled the scene, she forced herself to get up and walk for help.
Ghneimat and Fataftah were arrested a month after the attack and admitted to the crime. Wilson's testimony and Fataftah's DNA, from his blood on a knife Wilson had tried to defend herself with, were crucial to the prosecution. Ghneimat was sentenced to 2 life sentences and an additional 60 years imprisonment. Fataftah was sentenced to 1 life sentence and an additional 20 years imprisonment.
