Hatem Al-Shaloudi – 25-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and injured an Israeli soldier in Hebron on Sept. 17, 2016. Al-Shaloudi was shot and killed in response by Israeli soldiers. Security camera footage of the incident clearly shows Al-Shaloudi stabbing the soldier.

PMW Note: The rate of terror attacks by Palestinians against Israelis increased again in mid-September 2016. As a result, the rate of Palestinian terrorists being injured or killed in response to these attacks has increased. The following are some examples:

Sept. 15

• Muhammad Abd Al-Fattah Sarahin – a wanted Palestinian terrorist who was killed while resisting arrest on Sept. 15, 2016. Israeli special forces arrived at Sarahin’s home in Beit Ula northwest of Hebron to arrest him, and when he tried to escape the forces shot and killed him. PMW has been unable to verify the nature of his crimes.

Sept. 16

• Sa’id Al-Amru – 28-year-old Jordanian journalist who attacked Israeli border police officers with a knife in each hand, trying to stab them at the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City on Sept. 16, 2016. The officers shot and killed Al-Amru, and found additional knives on his person as well. Jordan condemned the officers’ killing of Al-Amru and denied that he tried to carry out a terror attack. However, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented security camera footage of the incident clearly showing Al-Amru trying to stab the officers.

• Muhammad Kayed Al-Rajabi – 15-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier at the Jilbar checkpoint in Hebron on Sept. 16, 2016. In response Israeli soldiers shot and killed Al-Rajabi.

• Firas and Raghad Al-Khaddour – Palestinian terrorists, an engaged couple, who carried out a car ramming attack against 3 Israeli youth, injuring them, at the entrance to Kiryat Arba on Sept. 16, 2016. Firas was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers and Raghad was injured and transferred to an Israeli hospital. Raghad left a will stating her reason for participating in the attack was that her sister, Majd Al-Khaddour, was killed at the same junction on June 24, 2016, when she carried out a car ramming attack.

• Rocks thrown at an Israeli bus on the road between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim, injuring the driver.
