Jerusalem - A terrorist was shot and killed inside an Israeli civilian’s West Bank home after the assailant left him with light stab wounds Wednesday.

The incident occurred in the Havat Mor outpost, which is located outside of the Taneh Omerim settlement in the South Hebron Hills.

According to an initial investigation into the event, the Israeli civilian heard a noise outside his family home. When he went outside to investigate the source of the noise, he was encountered by a Palestinian holding multiple knives.

The civilian returned back inside his home to retrieve his gun. The Palestinian followed him inside, stabbing him in the back.

The civilian managed to escape the assault, turning around and shooting the suspect. The civilian’s wife and young child were present inside the home during the assault.

The Palestinian attacker died after succumbing to his wounds.

The IDF was searching the area for further suspects.

I agree with you when headlines say "Israeli dies after being stabbed" instead of "Arab terrorist murders Israeli", but here the headline is ok

If someone breaks into your home, whether they are armed or not, shoot them dead, with hot lead, in the head!
