Oren Ben Yiftah from Lod is named as the victim who on Thursday transported the two Palestinian terrorists from the West Bank security barrier to the city of Elad, before being killed.

According to Hebrew-language media reports, Ben Yiftah did not know the pair were illegals. He had transported them at least ten times in the past to work in the ultra-Orthodox city, and was unaware of their attack plans.

After the two terrorists killed Ben Yiftah in his car, they continued to a nearby park and killed two more people, and severely wounded three others.
