Terrorist who knifed four Israelis in Kiryat Gath captured

The terrorist who stabbed four people, a 13-year old girl seriously, in the southern Israeli town of Kiryat Gath, was captured Saturday night in the backyard of a residential building. He was still holding the bloody knife. Earlier, the town’s population of 60,000 was placed under curfew and lockdown, as police hunted for the terrorist, street by street.  Kiryat Gath is the first Israeli town to be placed under unofficial curfew over a terrorist attack. Failing the attacker’s capture, the mayor planned to keep schools closed Sunday morning.
