( Two Israeli women were stabbed and wounded at a grocery store by two Palestinian terrorists in the Samaria community of Beit Horon on Monday. One of the women, 24-year-old Shlomit Krigman, died from her wounds on Tuesday.

According to reports, the two terrorists stabbed one of the women inside of the grocery store and stabbed the other as they were fleeing the scene. The surviving victim, 58, was in stable condition with moderate wounds. A security guard eventually shot dead both of the terrorists. Security forces also apparently found three home-made bombs that were planted by the terrorists near the store. 

The two terrorists, Ibrahim Alan, 22, from Beit Ur al-Tahta, and Hamas-affiliated Hussein Abu Ghosh, 17, from the Qalandiya refugee camp, infiltrated the Jewish community by jumping over the community’s security fence, Yedioth Ahronoth reported. 

After the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked defense establishment officials to prepare a detailed and comprehensive plan to protect Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria.

"The incitement and blatant lies to which young Palestinians are exposed on social networks, in the media, and in the education system encourage terrorism, as we've experienced today in Beit Horon, and as we have experienced in recent months," Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said.
