Liron Yisraeli, the female Israeli Border Guard that was stabbed in the neck yesterday at the Kever Rachel checkpoint in the West Bank, regained consciousness on Wednesday and recounted details of the incident, Israeli Channel 2 News reported.

Yisraeli spoke about her harrowing experience as she was visited at the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon.

She told how she let the attacker, a woman, pass into the checkpoint. The assailant then refused to allow her bag to be searched, because it contained a knife.

“She saw she had no option but to go my way,” Yisraeli said, “so she jumped on me and stabbed me in the throat.”

With the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister standing by her bed, Yisraeli then explained how she was able to capture her attacker even after she was stabbed, and as the perpetrator attempted to go after another female soldier.

“I tried to use all of my strength to kick her, and she fell. I told her to put down her knife, and after she refused to cooperate, I took it away from her by force,” said Yisraeli.

Prime Minister Netanyahu praised Yisraeli’s bravery and said that she acted in an extraordinary manner.

    I did not know the details, what a hero!

  • I would have just shot the attacker instead of disarming her . She had just stabbed a border guard . No mercy for such animals !!
