A Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab an IDF soldier near the al-Fawwar refugee camp in the West Bank on Thursday evening. The soldiers at the scene neutralized the terrorist and prevented him from carrying out the attack.

No injuries were reported among the soldiers. The terrorist has been arrested and taken in for questioning.

This evening’s attempted attack comes a day after an Israeli security guard was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist at the entrance to Karmei Tzur in Gush Etzion. The terrorist was eliminated by a second security guard at the scene.

On Wednesday afternoon, a Palestinian carrying a pipe bomb was arrested outside the military court near the Salim village in the West Bank. The suspect had hidden the device under his clothes.
