Today (Tuesday), an armed Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab IDF soldiers who were performing routine checks at the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stated that the soldiers eliminated the terrorist and prevented any injuries at the scene.
On Friday, another attempted stabbing attack also took place near the settlement of Alon Shvut in Gush Etzion. An IDF force in the area caught the terrorist who was brought in for investigation. A citizen was slightly injured and was treated at the scene.
The same day, two terrorist attacks occurred in Jerusalem at the same time. A terrorist attacked a Border Police force and murdered Hadas Malka at the Damascus Gate. At the same time, two terrorists attempted to attack police forces near Zedekiah’s Cave, one with a knife and the other with an improvised automatic weapon. As a result of a probable malfunction in the weapon, a worse attack was prevented. All three terrorists were eliminated.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks in Jerusalem. This is the first time that the terrorist organization has officially been related to an attack in Israel. Hamas rejected the claims and took responsibility for the attacks.
