JERUSALEM, Israel -- A retired Israeli army officer was murdered overnight in the latest in a string of terror attacks against Israelis.

Seraya Ofer was bludgeoned and stabbed to death outside his home in the northern Jordan Valley after he stepped outside to investigate noises he and his wife heard.

His wife, Monique, fled to get help, eventually reaching the road and flagging down a passing car.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said roadblocks were set up to catch the perpetrators.

"Unfortunately this has been the third terrorist-related attack within the last weeks and our security assessments are continuing at the moment as the hunt for the suspects continues," Rosenfeld told reporters.

Nearly a week ago, a nine-year-old girl miraculously survived a shooting attack outside her home in the Samarian community of Psagot outside of Ramallah.

On September 20, IDF Sgt. Tomer Hazan, 20, was bludgeoned to death by an Arab who had worked with him in a restaurant in a suburb of Tel Aviv.

Two days later, IDF Staff Sgt. Gal Kobi, 20, was killed by an Arab sniper in Hevron.
