A female terrorist approached a guard post near one of the entrances to the Tomb of the Patriarchs (Maarat Hamachpela), in Hebron. The terrorist pulled out a knife and tried to stab a Border Policeman.
The Border Policeman managed to accurately shoot and neutralize the terrorist with no harm to himself or anyone else, according to the police.
Update: The terrorist is dead.
It is unknown at this point if the terrorist got around the IDF closure of her village, or if she was already outside when the closure was set up.
*Regarding the word “neutralized”, the word is used when the terrorist is no longer capable of harming anyone. It could mean the terrorist is dead, unconscious, arrested or sufficiently wounded to no longer pose a threat.
