An armed Arab terrorist was stopped in his tracks Tuesday afternoon while trying to stab Israeli soldiers at a crossing, Checkpoint 104, near the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Tulkarem in Samaria.

The terrorist, armed with a knife, attempted to stab an IDF soldier stationed at the checkpoint.

The soldiers repeatedly fired warning shots in the air and ground, and the terrorist kept approaching the soldier. Until when the terrorist was stabbing distance away (and after retreating multiple times) did the soldier actually shoot at the terrorist.

No injuries were reported, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, except those suffered by the terrorist.

“Responding to the imminent threat, forces fired towards the attacker, resulting in his death,” the IDF reported.

Video of the attack can be seen here.
