After deadly stabbing, Liberman vows to fight terror with ‘iron fist’

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman vows Israel will fight against terrorism with an “iron fist” after an Israeli man is killed in a stabbing attack in the West Bank.

“My heart is with the Etzion Bloc. My condolences to the victim’s family. We will continue to fight against terror with an iron fist,” Liberman writes on his Twitter account.

The stabbing victim, whose name has not been released, died after being taken to a hospital following the attack next to the Gush Etzion Junction in the central West Bank.

The terrorist, a 17-year-old Palestinian from the village of Yatta, was shot by an armed civilian after attempting to flee the scene and taken into custody.
