Though the attempted murder of a resident of Moshav Sde Avraham by an infiltrator from the Gaza Strip on Monday morning remains under investigation by the IDF and Israel Police, new details have emerged about the incident that could have very easily ended in far more bloodshed.
On his way to Moshav Sde Avraham, the attacker somehow managed to cut through the electric security fence on the border with Gaza, and make his way by foot several kilometers to the Eshkol Region security fence and finally the fence of Sde Avraham, all without being detected.
It was only when the resident of the house began fighting with the man was he detected, and neighbors notified the moshav security team who went into pursuit of the attacker, while also notifying the IDF units nearby.
The resident of the house, a mother of four who was home alone, sustained light stab wounds to her shoulder and face, but managed to fight off the attacker and force him to flee.
