Muhammad Tareq Dar Yusuf, 17, snuck into the West Bank community of Adam on Thursday evening before fatally stabbing Yotam Ovadia, a father of two young children. A 58-year-old man was also seriously wounded during the attack, as was a third victim who sustained light injuries before fatally shooting Yusuf.
The day following the attack, an article in the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida claimed Yusuf “died as a Martyr,” according to a translation by Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli research and advocacy organization.
