Text as it appears in English above the photos:

“What happened at Hawara checkpoint .
A witness said that ashrqt taha 16 years old , she wanted to cross the street near the barrier as a BMW vehicle run over the her and then a settler get out from his car his name is (MSIKA) the Chairman of the Council of Jewish settlements in the northern West Bank ,and he opened fire directly on the girl and then the Israeli soldiers came to the scene of the shooting and fired 10 bullets on the girl, Later they found that the girl was carrying a bag with her own laptop and then throw the knife next to her..” (sic., exactly as posted to Facebook)
The photo on the right shows former Chairman of the Shomron Regional Council Gershom Mesika’s car and the Palestinian female terrorist he ran over in order to prevent her from stabbing an Israeli girl, after he saw the terrorist with a knife in her hand, chasing after the Israeli girl. The top photos on the right also show the scene of the event. On the bottom right is a cartoon showing Palestinians lying in a row on the ground, in pools of blood, and an Israeli soldier walking down the row with a basket of knives, placing one knife beside each Palestinian, expressing the Palestinian libel that Israelis are “executing Palestinians in cold blood” and then framing the “victims” as stabbers by placing knives at the scene.

Ashraqat Taha Ahmad Qatanani - 18-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who attempted to stab an Israeli girl, running after her with a drawn knife, on Nov. 22, 2015, at a junction near Nablus. Former head of the Shomron regional council Gershon Mesika foiled her attempt by running his car into her when he saw her attempted attack. Israeli soldiers then shot Qatanani. The PA reported that she died of her injuries, but this has not been officially confirmed.
