Security forces shot and neutralized a terrorist on Tuesday afternoon after he attempted to carry out a stabbing attack at Huwara near the IDF Samaria Territorial Brigade base in the West Bank.
While brandishing a knife, the terrorist charged at a group of Golani soldiers from the 51st Battalion, who were standing in a square near the base. The soldiers opened fire at the man before he managed to reach them.
The terrorist was evacuated to Beilinson Hospital at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva.
The attack is the second to have taken place within two days. On Monday morning on Holocaust Remembrance Day, a female soldier was stabbed at the Qalandiya checkpoint, north of Jerusalem.
