Arab with screwdriver attempts to stab soldiers near Hevron

An Arab terrorist armed with a screwdriver attempted to stab Israeli security forces on Thursday morning at the Kvasim Junction, just south of Hevron in Judea.

The terrorist was eliminated; none were injured in the attempted attack.

“A Palestinian armed with a screwdriver approached a checkpoint near Hevron and attempted to stab security forces,” the army said in a statement. “The forces responded to the imminent threat, thwarted the attack and shot the perpetrator, resulting in his death.”
