IDF Givati forces shot a terrorist who ran with a knife towards a bus stop near Kiryat Arba. The terrorist, 15-year-old Isa Dardaat from a Palestinian village near Hebron, attempted to stab an IDF soldier. Additional details are currently under investigation.

Earlier this week, Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman briefed the Israeli government and addressed the current relative calm in the West Bank. According to him, the situation is delicate and requires heightened sensitivity towards incidents of a religious character and a fixed standard for terrorist attacks, particularly stabbings, car-rammings and shootings. He also warned that the upcoming holiday season is a particularly tense time every year.
