A Palestinian terrorist on Wednesday night tried to stab an IDF soldier who was stationed at a checkpoint near the Shomron community of Einav.

The fighters were able to neutralize the attacker and he was injured. After treatment at the scene he was taken for further questioning.

The soldier was lightly injured.
