Terrorist's knife

An Arab terrorist failed in his attempt to stab an Israeli soldier to death on Friday afternoon at the Gush Etzion junction.

Soldiers on watch noticed a suspicious Arab approaching the junction and called it in.


As the Arab terrorist from Beit Fajar approached the junction, a soldier quickly intercepted him and asked him for his ID.

The terrorist pulled out a knife and tried to stab the soldier. The soldier backed away quickly and cocked his gun and prepared to shoot as he was being chased.

A third soldier then opened fire and killed the terrorist.

No one was injuries in the attack.

A female relative of this terrorist was killed trying to do a ramming attack in the same location a few months ago.
