Ynetnews reports:  Two terrorists infiltrated the settlement of Eli in the West Bank early Wednesday morning, and attacked a local resident at his doorstep with clubs. They ran away but were killed by security forces soon after.

Roi Harel recounted the incident: “I was stepping out of the house, going to reserve duty, at around 5:00am,” Harel told Ynet. “I opened the door, and saw two terrorists with hatred and anger in their eyes. They attacked me with clubs and axes, and entered my home.

“After a couple of seconds I came to, and I ran after them as they had almost reached my children’s bedrooms. I managed to push them outside the house and I locked my door.”

Harel was lightly wounded in the attack, later being evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, receiving treatment for cuts to his head. “I was very shaken,” he said, “It’s not a simple feeling, especially because my wife and five children were inside the house. No I’m OK, and being treated.”
