Itongadol.- An attempted stabbing attack took place at Tapuah Junction, inside the West Bank, Friday afternoon.
A preliminary investigation revealed that two Palestinian terrorists approached Border Police stationed at a security barrier and attempted to stab an officer.
The two terrorist were subsequently shot in the incident and have been subdued.
No Israelis were injured in the attack.
On Thursday, an Israeli soldier and a pregnant woman were lightly injured by Palestinians as violence continued to rage in the West Bank, primarily around the Hebron area.
Security forces killed two knife wielding Palestinians in two separate incidents that occurred within hours of each other in Hebron.
The day of violence began in the morning, at a spot in Hebron called Check- point 160 – on the road from Kiryat Arba to the Cave of the Patriarchs – where a Palestinian assailant stabbed and lightly wounded an IDF soldier in the head.
The officer quickly recovered from the attack and chased the assailant who tried to stab a border policeman at the scene.
Another Border Police officer standing nearby shot and killed the assailant, according to a police statement. The soldier was treated at the scene and transported by a Magen David Adom ambulance to the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem.
A few hours later outside of Hebron, Palestinians threw stones at cars on Route 60 near by the village of Beit Einun. A pregnant woman was lightly injured in the face by glass shards from the shattered window of her vehicle.
