Israeli sources reported Tuesday that three Israelis were killed and three were injured in two areas before Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian near Ariel illegal colony near Salfit, in the central part of the occupied West bank.

Update: Israeli sources identified the three Israelis as Tamir Avichai, 50, from Kiryat Netafim colony in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, Michael Ledigin, 36+, from Bat-Yam, and Mordechai Ashkenazi, 59, from Yavne.

According to a statement by the Israeli army, a Palestinian arrived at the gate of the Industrial Zone in Ariel, stabbed several Israelis before fleeing the scene, and denied reports claiming that a second Palestinian was killed. However, it stated that the soldiers were looking for him.

Israeli Ynet News reported that the Palestinian allegedly stabbed a security guard at the gas station’s entrance, then attacked four others with a knife before using a vehicle to escape and rammed one Israeli before soldiers and armed guards opened fire in his direction.

According to Israeli Channel 7, one of the Israelis, in his 40s, died from critical wounds, a second man, also in his 40’s, was wounded at a gas station and succumbed to serious wounds, and the third, in his 30’s, was fatally injured near the gas station.

Channel 7 added that three other Israelis suffered critical or serious wounds and are receiving treatment at the Beilinson Medical Center in Petah Tikva.

The Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Morad Sami Souf, 18, from Haris town near Salfit in the central West Bank.

According to Israeli reports, Mohammad had a permit and worked at a factory in Ariel.

Israeli paramedics rushed to the area, provided treatment to the wounded, and transferred them to Beilinson Medical Center before three of them succumbed to their wounds; three Israelis suffered serious wounds.

Israeli sources said the incidents occurred in two locations near Ariel when two Palestinians attacked Israeli colonizers at the entrance of the Industrial Zone and a gas station.

They added that a Palestinian fled the scene in a stolen car and was located by the soldiers on Route 5, where they shot and killed him, and said the young man first tried to flee the scene, resulting in a crash involving eight cars before he was fatally shot.

On Monday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed, at dawn, a teenage girl, Folla Rasmi Abdul-Aziz Masalma, 16, in Betunia town after shooting her with a live round in the head

Within the span of 25 minutes, three Israelis were murdered and three were seriously wounded in the area of Ariel in the northern West Bank on Tuesday morning.

This is how the assailant perpetrated his attack, minute by minute, until being shot dead by Israeli forces.

9:25 A.M., the entrance to the Ariel industrial zone

The assailant, 19-year-old Muhammad Murad Sami Souf, from the town of Hares close to Ariel, approached and stabbed a security guard at the entrance to Ariel's industrial zone, seriously wounding him.

A second guard at the scene fired his gun into the air rather than at Souf. He explained to security officials that he feared hitting the people waiting in line at the security check.

Souf obtained a work permit for the Ariel Industrial Park, however the place where the guards stood was outside the industrial zone, and could be reached without an entry permit.

The Palestinian who drove Souf to the site did not know of his intentions to carry out an attack, the IDF said.

Souf then fled to a gas station about 150 meters away and stabbed two people. One of the victims succumbed to his wounds and the other is in moderate condition.

Souf then pulled a different man out of his car at the gas station, stabbing him to death and stealing his car.

9:35, Route 5

Souf drove the stolen car down Route 5 and ran over a passerby, killing him. He then got out of the car and stabbed another man, seriously injuring him.

A driver who saw what was happening got out of his car to help the wounded man. Souf tried to stab him too and then stole his car, the man told Haaretz. “I saw an accident, got out to help and the terrorist chased after me and tried to stab me. He took my car and began driving against the direction of traffic,” said the man.

From there, Souf drove west on Route 5, in the direction of the Cross-Samaria Highway checkpoint. He turned around on the road, went back in the direction he came from and drove against the direction of traffic.

Souf returned to the place where he had run over the man, crashed into a number of cars and exited the vehicle. He was then shot by a soldier after attempting to flee.

A civilian in the area also tried to shoot Souf unsuccessfully. One of the cars at the scene was damaged by the shots, but no one was hurt.

At 10:00, the report of Souf’s death was received.
