Border policewoman foils terrorist attack

Corporal A’ joined the Border Police after immigrating to Israel from France. On Friday, she prevented a terrorist attack at the Tapuach junction. “I understood that if I hesitated for a second, the fighter beside me won’t be alive.”

A female Border Police fighter, Corporal A’, foiled a terrorist attack on Friday, when she managed to neutralize two terrorists who attempted to stab a fellow border policeman at the Tapuach junction. Head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, said that he had visited the area and spoke to the border policewoman, who said, “I did my part. This is what I came to Israel for – to protect the country.”



The two terrorists arrived on a motorcycle at around 12PM. Corp. A' quickly realized that the men had knives and were approaching her partner. A' rapidly cocked her weapon and shot them men. One of them was killed, and the other critically wounded. This was the first incident during the current terror wave where terrorists used a motorcycle in an attack. The two sped towards the Border Police fighters at the Tapuach junction.

“I understood that if I hesitated for a second, the fighter beside me won’t be alive anymore,” Corp. A' said. She reenacted the incident for Border Police Deputy Commissioner Uzi Levi, who heads the Border Police’s Judea and Samaria command, telling him, “We are ready and trained specifically for these events.” Her teammate was lightly wounded and treated on the scene.

Levi commended the fighters’ response, saying. “You acted calmly, just as you’re expected too. The alertness and preparedness shown during attacks have been proven to save lives, and are the main reason these incidents come to an end in a short time and without casualties.

Dagan, who came to the scene, added, “A great disaster was prevented here today, due to the resourcefulness of the soldiers and due to the heroic soldier. I call for the state of Israel to learn how to fight terrorism from the IDF soldiers. Bravely, with determination, seeking engagement until victory
