A terrorist attempted to stab a civilian last night (Friday) near the Alon Shvut settlement in Gush Etzion. An IDF force stationed in the area caught the terrorist, who was brought in for interrogation. The civilian was slightly injured sustaining a blow to his nose during the incident and received medical treatment at the scene.

As reported earlier by JOL, terror attacks were simultaneously carried out at two different locations in Jerusalem. At the Damascus Gate, a terrorist attacked an Israel Border Police force critically injuring the policewoman Staff Sgt. Major Hadas Malka, who was later pronounced dead. The second terror attack occurred near Zedekiah’s Cave, where two terrorists tried to attack Israel Police forces: one with a knife and the other with a Carl Gustav m/45 submachine gun.
