A female Arab terrorist arrived at Gush Etzion Junction in Judea on Monday morning and tried to stab an IDF soldier, in an attack in which one person was lightly wounded according to Magen David Adom (MDA) reports. The terrorist tried to flee the scene according to reports, evidently after the soldier managed to fight her off, but IDF soldiers on patrol who were active in the area shot her and wounded her critically.
Magen David Adom paramedics provided treatment to the Israeli civilian who did not require hospitalization. The 20-year-old Palestinian who was shot is in serious condition, a paramedic said. The IDF closed off the area and was searching for the vehicle that dropped off the attacker at the junction.
