    Ladygin arrived in Israel with his family from Ukraine, five years ago and members of his family followed recently as they were fleeing the Russian invasion of that country. Bat Yam municipality said they would be providing solace and assistant to the bereaved family.
    Earlier officials said Tamir Avihai, a Jewish settler, was among the victims of the attack.
    He was survived by his wife and six children.
    A preliminary investigation of the attack showed that the terrorist, identified as Mohammad Souf from the Palestinian town of Hares, first attacked the Israeli guard at the entrance to the settlement's industrial zone, then proceeded to a nearby gas station and stabbed three more people there.
