An Arab terrorist was put out of action early Sunday afternoon after he attempted to stab soldiers in an attack near Shechem.
The terrorist was shot by other soldiers in a unit of the Samaria territorial brigade, who witnessed the attack.
“A stabbing attack was thwarted south of Nablus,” the IDF spokesperson said in a statement.
“A Palestinian assailant drew a knife and attempted to stab soldiers securing the area. The force responded and fired towards the attacker, resulting in his death.”
No Israeli soldiers were injured.
