CCTV footage shows the terrorist casually crossing the street and walking up to Ben Gal from behind, then quickly stabbing him in the chest.
The terrorist fled the scene on foot. An IDF officer who witnessed the attack attempted to neutralize the terrorist by hitting him with his car, but the assailant fled. The terrorist has been caught by IDF soldiers and is now in custody.
At the start of a Likud party meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed, “We will bring them to justice,” referring to the terrorist and any possible accomplices.
