Three women and one man were murdered Tuesday afternoon in a mixed stabbing-ramming terror attack near the BIG shopping center on Derech Hevron Street in Be’er Sheva. Two additional victims were moderately injured in the attack, and were evacuated to the city’s Soroka Medical Center.
Initial police investigations show that the terrorist arrived at the gas station on Derech Hevron in Be’er Sheva, with a knife in hand. There, he stabbed a woman. Later, he arrived at the nearby commercial center, rammed a bicycle rider with his vehicle, and immediately afterwards exited the vehicle and went on to stab several other passersby.
