Attempted stabbing attack in Hevron thwarted

An Arab terrorist was shot dead in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hevron Tuesday evening, after approaching soldiers while armed with a knife,apparently with the intention of stabbing them.

According to initial reports from the scene, soldiers spotted the armed Arab terrorist and responded quickly by opening fire before he was able to reach them. The would-be attacker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The foiled attack comes just hours after a stabbing attack left a soldier moderately wounded at Gush Etzion Junction, just north of Hevron.

Two terrorists were involved in that attack, and both were immediately eliminated by soldiers at the scene.
