One Israeli was killed and two were injured in a stabbing attack in the Jewish settlement of Adam, a few miles north of Jerusalem.

According to United Hatzalah, three people were initially injured by the suspected terrorist.

One victim in his 50s was in critical condition and was transported to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem where he was stabilized by doctors. However, another victim in his 30s, who was stabbed repeatedly in the chest and torso, apparently died of his wounds after being taken to Hadassah.

A third victim was lightly injured and treated at the scene.

The IDF Spokesperson Unit said in a statement that the Palestinian who carried out the terror attack in Adam—a teenager who apparently breached a fence to reach Jewish civilians—was shot and killed by security forces.
