Terrorist duo stabs two soldiers; manhunt underway
Soldiers moderately and lightly wounded in stabbing as attackers still at large in the Har Brakha area of the West Bank.

Two terrorists stabbed and wounded two soldiers in Har Brakha in the West Bank on Wednesday evening, and then fled. 

 

 

Large numbers of security forces were searching for the attackers in the Nablus area. Har Brakha residents were asked to stay indoors. One soldier was moderately wounded and the other lightly.

 

“We have opened an emergency headquarters and are waiting for security directions. The incident has not ended,” said Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan.  

 

It was initially feared that the attackers had stolen the soldiers' weapons, but these were found in the nearby guard post.

The attack came close on the heels of an attack in the early hours of Wednesday, when two terrorists infiltrated the settlement of Eli in the West Bank and attacked a local resident on his doorstep with clubs. They ran away but were killed by security forces soon after.
