Even though 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.
