A Palestinian man stabbed an IDF soldier from the Nahal Brigade’s 50th Battalion near Hebron’s Tel Rumeida neighborhood on Saturday morning in the fifth attack this weekend. He was shot and killed by another soldier.
According to an initial investigation into the Saturday morning attack, the Palestinian man arrived at an IDF checkpoint, where he was asked to show the soldiers identification. He handed them a piece of paper, and then pulled out a knife and stabbed one of them.
The soldier, lightly wounded, was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
