A 20-year-old female IDF soldier was mortally wounded in a stabbing attack at the Adam Junction, north of Jerusalem on Wednesday afternoon, according to Israeli press services.

She was attacked by two terrorists. One was killed by a female soldier who witnessed the attack. The other was arrested.

According to reports two hours after the attack, the young woman is still fighting for her life on the operating table at Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus.

Netanyahu Lauds Trump for ‘Reassertion of American Leadership in the Middle East’

After their meeting in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked US President Donald Trump for his “reassertion...

This comes on the heels of the light wounding of a female IDF soldier in a stabbing attack in the West Bank. The terrorist was shot and killed, according to a Channel 2 News bulletin.

A few hours earlier, an Israeli man was lightly injured in an apparent car-ramming attack near Ofra, a settlement located between Jerusalem and Nablus, Israeli news sites reported shortly after the incident, which is still being investigated.

A policeman, possibly the person injured in the attack, shot at the vehicle, which had crashed into a checkpoint on Highway 60, the site of a number of recent rock and other attacks against Israeli  motorists.

After stopping the car several hundred feet from the scene, the driver fled on foot towards a nearby Palestinian village. Police are investigating the incident to determine whether it was, in fact, an intentional car-ramming attack.

Earlier in the morning, a 15-year-old Palestinian girl with a knife tried to enter to the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar, where she was shot and wounded by soldiers.

These are the latest attacks in the wave of terrorism that surged early last month, as a result of which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implemented new security measures, among them beefing up police presence through the use of IDF soldiers.

    First it says she was “mortally wounded”, then it says she is “fighting for her life”. Which is it?

    the full flower of “palestinian” creativity and productivity:

    no inventions? no patents? no achievements in science, the arts, literature?

    well, yes, nothing to speak of. but, they have stabbers, destroyers, cowards, thieves, murderers, rapists, vandals. oh, yeah, they really do excel. but, that’s all they ask of themselves and that’s all that the u.n. & the e.u. ask of them. “don’t build anything. destroy what the Jews have built. and, then, blame it all on the Jews. it’s perfect, don’t you see?”

    “got the problems that every human has? frustrated in love? at work? in school? life going nowhere? your brother, cousin, etc. making it, but not you? out-of-wedlock pregnancy? gay? unmarriageable? just blame the Jews. it’s the Jews’ fault. and, if it’s their fault, what are you going to do about it? go be a hero. end the humiliation. redeem yourself. get honor & money for yourself and/or your family. attack the Jews.”

    it’s pathological.
