On Thursday, a Palestinian terrorist armed with a knife attempted to implement a stabbing attack in the Jewish community in Hebron. IDF soldiers opened fire and eliminated him before he was able to harm anyone.

Only a few hours prior to the incident, a young Palestinian attacked an IDF soldier near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The incident occurred at around 8:05 am. The terrorist approached an IDF post during riots that took place nearby. He got close to the soldier, took out a knife and started stabbing his upper body.

Although he was slightly injured in his head, the soldier was able to push back the terrorist who attempted to attack also a Border Police officer. The officer shot and neutralized the terrorist. He was critically injured and later succumbed to his wounds.

The injured soldier was treated on the scene. He was then evacuated by Magen David Adom to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem for further treatment.
