A Border Policeman neutralized two Muslim terrorists armed with knives at the Tapuach Junction Tuesday, thwarting their attack. The policeman was unharmed.
The two would-be terrorists, aged 15, arrived at the junction from the direction of Shechem and headed towards the bus stations at the junction.
A Border Policeman stationed at a nearby post noticed them and alerted the troops stationed at the junction.
The soldiers initiated the suspect arrest protocol, first calling on the suspects to stop.
When the two terrorists failed to respond, a Border Policeman fired some shots into the air, which prompted one of the terrorists to draw his knife and move on the soldiers.
In response, the soldier then shot at the terrorists’ lower bodies, neutralizing them.
Border Police said the terrorists were arrested, have received medical attention on site and were taken to receive further treatment.
