A 19-year-old Israeli soldier was stabbed to death today (November 13, 2013) as he slept on a bus from Nazareth to a central bus station in Afula, according to the Jewish Press website.
Eden Atlas joined the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) just three weeks ago and was a resident of Nazareth.
Hussein Jawadara of Jenin is a 15-year-old Arab terrorist who stabbed Atlas all over his body. Doctors at a hospital fought for Atlas's life, but they were unable to save him.
Jawadara -- who had entered Israel illegally -- was captured and his knife was recovered by bus passengers, and turned over to security forces. Both of his brothers are imprisoned in Israeli prisons for terrorist activities -- one brother for murdering a Jew when he was only 15 (the same age as Jawadara).
