A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and killed an IDF soldier at the Central Bus Station in the northern city of Afula Wednesday. The soldier was Pvt. Eden Atias, from the Israeli city of Nazareth Illit.

“Congratulations to the Palestinian West Bank hero who killed an Israeli soldier in Afula this morning,” Hamas spokesman Fawzy Barhoom wrote on his Facebook page.

“This is a heroic act of resistance showing that all methods of oppression and terror have not and will not succeed in stopping our people from carrying out jihad and resistance. We call on our people and the Palestinian youth to take part in the movement of the resistance, no matter the sacrifice.
