The assailant in the first attack on Sunday was later identified as a 38-year-old resident of the Nablus named Bassm Salah. According to police, "He had been walking from Damascus Gate towards Hagai Street when he noticed two border policemen who were patrolling together."

 

"He immediately pulled out a knife and ran at the officers while yelling "Allahu Akbar." He managed to stab one of the border policemen in his neck. The fighters reacted quickly, charging their weapons and firing and killing the attacker. A search of his body revealed an additional knife," the statement concluded.

 Yehiel Shtern, a volunteer with Hatzala told ynet, "When I arrived at the scene, I saw a young man who with stab wounds to his upper body. Myself and the doctor who was volunteering with Hatzala administered initial medical treatment, and he was later evacuated to the hospital. Passersby said that the policemen returned fire towards the assailant near the location where Aharon Bennet and Nehimia Lavi were murdered. The terrorist was shot and killed.

At around 12:30pm, a Palestinian rammed his car into IDF troops at the entrance to the Beit Ummar refugee camp near Kiryat Arba, south of the Gush Etzion junction, wounding four moderately and one lightly. Several of the wounded were taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
