JERUSALEM (VINnews) — A 22-year-old resident of Yitzhar, a community situated in the heart of Samaria near Shechem, fended off a terrorist threatening to stab him with a knife and succeeded in escaping from him.
Binyamin Cohen, who got married only a few months ago, was waiting at a bus stop near Yitzhar on Wednesday morning when he was attacked by the Arab terrorist. Cohen, a son of one of the heads of Yeshivat Bet El, succeeded in pushing the Arab away and then confronted him with his bare hands, after which he succeeded in running away.
A security camera captured the incident. Note the Palestinian cars passing by (white numberplates) without intervening to save Cohen from his attacker.
