Badass Tool Fan Uses Guitar To Help Subdue Terrorist Who Killed U.S. Army Veteran In Israel
Sadly, a terrorist went on a bloody stabbing rampage in Israel on Tuesday where up to 12 innocent people were wounded, with four in serious condition, and the brutal siege left one person dead.
The victim who was stabbed to death was Taylor Force, an American citizen who was studying at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University and was a former U.S. Army veteran. Force graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and served in the Army from 2009 to 2014, according to his LinkedIn page. Force served in both Iraq in Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Force’s wife was also attacked and is in critical condition.
The 29-year-old Force and his wife were in the port city of Jaffa, a popular tourist beachfront close to Tel Aviv. Over 20 minutes, Bashar Masalha, a 22-year-old Palestinian terrorist from the West Bank refugee camp in Qalqiliya stabbed random civilians along a crowded beach-side boulevard in Jaffa.
Force, originally from Lubbock, Texas, was rushed to Wolfson Medical Center in Holon where he was pronounced dead.
Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos said Force “exemplified the spirit of discovery.”
“This horrific act of violence has robbed our Vanderbilt family of a young hopeful life and all of the bright promise that he held for bettering our greater world,” Zeppos said in a message to students and faculty.
