A soldier was stabbed and moderately wounded in Kiryat Arba, near Hebron, on Friday afternoon.
The moments in which security forces neutralized the attacker were filmed by the al-Quds TV network, which has Hamas affiliations. The attacker was killed. It soon emerged that he had been disguised as a cameraman, wearing a vest and carrying cameras.
Earlier in the day, an armored D9 bulldozer was hit by gunfire near the Gaza Strip. Israeli forces did not return fire.
A projectile was found in the bulldozer's windshield.
Earlier this week, gunfire from Gaza was aimed at an IDF officer's vehicle.
In addition, on several occasions in the past week scores of Palestinians crossed the Gaza border into Israel.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be received on Wednesday in Berlin by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the German government announced on Friday. Netanyahu had canceled a visit in early October because of Israeli-Palestinian violence.
The two leaders "will discuss the security situation in Israel and the region," the statement said Merkel's spokesman.
Deputy head of Hamas' political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, said Friday in a taped speech broadcast at a conference in Istanbul that "the Jerusalem intifada must go on and the resistance must be intensified.”
