Three Israelis were stabbed after a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated the West Bank settlement of Adam, located just outside of Jerusalem.

Two of the wounded, a 31-year-old in serious condition and a 58-year-old in stable condition, were taken to Jerusalem Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus.

Magen David Adom paramedic Uriel Anis said that when he arrived at the scene, both men were on the ground with stab wounds to the upper part of their bodies.

Another victim, 41, who was lightly wounded, was transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

A spokesperson for the Adam settlement said that the terrorist was able to jump over the fence and run 300 meters to the first street, where he stabbed the first two victims.

A witness to the attack came to the aid of the victims and was also stabbed, before he shot the terrorist to death.

Adam residents were asked to stay in their homes, as security forces searched throughout the settlement of some 5,000 residents to ensure that no additional terrorists had entered the community.

The community is located on the edge of Route 60, near one of the entry ways to the Palestinian city of Ramallah.

Security forces plan to conduct an operational activity in the village of Kober, where the 17-year-old terrorist lived, according to IDF spokesman Brig. General Ronen Manelis. The terrorist who infiltrated the Neveh Tzuf settlement last year and killed three members of the Salomon family also came from the Kober village.

Military intelligence and the Shin Bet and are checking to see if there is any connection between the two attacks.

Binyamin Regional Council deputy head Israel Ganz said that such a seriously incident can not pass in silence.

He called on Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman to take action against terrorist infrastructures in the West Bank and to give final approval to a plan for 1,000 new housing units in the settlement.

Hamas praised the attack in an official statement, saying “We praise the heroic action, which is a natural response to Israel’s crimes … this is a continuation of the Intifada.”

Earlier in the day, Fathi Hamad, a hardline Hamas official, called on Muslims to kill Zionist Jews wherever they find them, in a speech at a funeral at the Great Omari Mosque in Gaza City.

“O Muslims, wherever you find a Zionist Jew, you must kill him because that is an expression of your solidarity with the al-Aqsa Mosque and an expression of your solidarity with… your Jerusalem, your Palestine and… your people,” said Hamad, a member of the Hamas politburo.
