“The terrorist succeeded in breaking into the base and was determined to hurt soldiers and vandalize military property. Soldiers at the scene operated quickly in order to halt the terrorist and deter the immediate life threat he posed for the other soldiers nearby,” IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said in a statement.
