A terrorist with a knife was shot and killed by Israeli security forces on Friday, Shavuos, near a shul as he infiltrated the Tene Omarim community, near Mount Chevron.

The terrorist was apprehended at the entrance of the community’s shul, where Shavuos tefillos were underway.

A video clip from the security camera at the town’s gate shows the terrorist crawling under the gate while holding a knife in his hand. There does not seem to be a security guard at the gate, and the terrorist can be seen entering the town undisturbed.

The shul is located quite far from the gate, which means the terrorist walked a few minutes around the settlement, including a playground full of children, without being noticed. It is clear that he knew where he was heading as he didn’t attempt any attacks before reaching the shul.
