Jerusalem – ZAKA Chairman Yehuda Meshi-Zahav on Saturday night showed the scene of Friday’s terror attack.
On Friday night, 19-year-old terrorist – aptly nicknamed a “beast” by Israeli prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu – murdered three members of the Salomon family and wounded a fourth. At the time, the family was eating their Friday night dinner, celebrating the birth of a newborn baby.
When the terrorist began his stabbing spree, one of the women hid her five children in a side room and called the police, saving their lives.
“The amount of blood here is horrific,” Meshi-Zahav said. “To see this amount of blood, right near the Shabbat (Sabbath) table with the wine and the Shabbat candles, and the preparations for the celebration… It’s horrific.”
“It says in the Bible, ‘Through your blood, you shall live.’ Here, they celebrated the new life of a baby, and a terrorist came and took away lives. They didn’t even have a chance to touch the foods they’d prepared to celebrate the newborn.
“It was a stroke of luck that the neighbor heard the screams… Otherwise, I don’t even want to think what could have happened, G-d forbid.”
