After attempting to ram people with his car near a large shopping center in Be’ersheva, Israel, Abu al-Qi’an exited his car to stab people: killing four and seriously wounding two others before running to a different area to slash at other passersby.
The Islamic state supporter was shot and killed by a bus driver and another Israeli civilian at the scene.
Among the four Jews who were killed was Rabbi Moshe Kravitzki, a”h, who served as a Chabad shaliach in the Nahal Beka neighborhood in Southern Be-er sheva.
Tragically, two mothers, Dorit Yachbas and Lora Yitzchak, were also among the killed victims.
Both terror groups: Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad praised Abu al-Qi’an’s murders on Tuesday.
