At least four people were killed and two were seriously injured in a terrorist stabbing attack and car-ramming in Beersheva, Israel.

A lone assailant reportedly drove up to a gas station near a large shopping center, exited his car and began stabbing people, killing three and injuring others. He then ran to two other areas, where he continued to slash at passersby. He was shot and killed by a bus driver and another Israeli civilian at the scene.

According to initial reports, the attacker was a resident of the Bedouin town of Hora. He was released from an Israeli prison in 2019 and known to have been a sympathizer of the Islamic State, and had unsuccessfully tried to join them in Syria.

The rampage was the deadliest attack on Israeli civilians since June 2016, when two terrorists opened fire at Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market, killing four and wounding 16.

The attack came amid a string of attacks in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

Rabbi Moshe Krivitski is survived by his wife, Miriam, and their four children. He is also survived by his father. The funeral is scheduled to take place at the Beersheva Jewish community cemetery at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23.
