An American student from Vanderbilt University was stabbed to death in one of three bloody terror attacks that rocked Israel Tuesday, just as Vice President Biden arrived in Tel Aviv to meet with leaders in an effort to stem Palestinian violence and mend frayed relations with the Jewish state.

This is the American student who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist on a knife rampage in Tel Aviv before he was shot dead by police.

Taylor Force, 29, of Lubbock, Texas, was attacked along a boardwalk near a beach in the Jaffa area popular with tourists.

Up to 12 others were wounded, with four reported to be in a serious condition, according to ambulance service officials.

Force, a student at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management, was in Israel on a school trip with several other students and staff at the time of the attack.

In a statement, Vanderbilt University’s Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos confirmed Force had been fatally wounded, but added that all other students and staff on the trip are safe.

‘Taylor embarked on this trip to expand his understanding of global entrepreneurship and also to share his insights and knowledge with start-ups in Israel,’ Zeppos said.

‘He exemplified the spirit of discovery, learning and service that is the hallmark of our wonderful Owen community.

‘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.

‘Taylor’s family and his friends and colleagues have our deepest sympathy and utmost support.’

The attacker has been identified by security services as Bashar Masalha, 22, from the West Bank settlement of Qalqilyah.

Police say Masalha stabbed several people close to the marina in Jaffa, Tel Aviv, before running towards the Manta Ray restaurant on the seaside promenade, stabbing more victims.

Masalha then fled towards the center of Tel Aviv, stabbing motorists as he ran, police said.

The Jerusalem Post, citing Israel’s Channel 2, reports that one of those seriously injured during the attacks is a pregnant woman while another is a Russian tourist.

According to Ynet the dead tourist’s wife was also among those seriously injured. The stabbings happened near a beach that is popular with tourists.

Shocking video of part of the attack, uploaded to YouTube, shows a man believed to be Masalha running along a darkened street into oncoming traffic.

As cars slow down, he can be seen running up to several of the vehicles and apparently stabbing the occupants before carrying on up the road.

Yosef, a witness who spoke to Ynet, said: ‘The terrorist, young with a sweatshirt, came from the direction of the Jaffa port.

‘At the promenade’s plaza he jumped on a couple of tourists. A woman was stabbed several times, tried to get away and collapsed. He continued stabbing a man and another younger guy in the leg.

‘I was in my car. I ran out, grabbed a metal bar and hit him on the back. He tried to stab me and then fled.’

Another witness, who gave her name as Emily, said: ‘I heard two guys screaming that there was an attack. I ran in the opposite direction and ran into a man who was on the ground in his blood.’
