Yet again, a bulldozer has been used as a terrorist weapon to hurt innocent civilians. Today’s terrorist has been identified as Ghasam Abu-Tir, a relative of Hamas lawmaker Muhammad Abu Tir (the guy with the funny red beard and gray hair).
The terrorist was 22 years old and a resident of an Arab neighborhood in Jerusalem. What is interesting is that, once again, the hero of the day is associated with the Kiryat Arba community.
53-year-old Yaki Asael from Susia, is an IDF Company Commander (res.), with eight children and six grandchildren. Asael owns and operates a vineyard and teaches Bible studies in the Kiryat Arba High School Yeshiva. Although 24 people were injured, Asael’s quick actions probably saved lives.
What Israel will do as a result of this latest attack…no one knows. Stay tuned and pray for the wounded.
