An IDF force on Friday morning fired at a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba. The terrorist is in critical condition. No Israeli forces were harmed in the incident.

The soldiers were guarding a crowded bus station when the terrorist reportedly pulled out a knife and tried to sneak up on them from behind. Police scanned the area for possible other assailants.

Earlier this week, two terrorists tried to stab IDF Border Police officers at a security checkpoint in Hebron.
