IDF Officer Injured in Stabbing Attack Near Nablus; Assailant Shot Dead
JNS.org – Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinian terrorists on Thursday in two separate stabbing attacks.
The first attack took place in Beit Anun, near Hebron, when a Palestinian terrorist tried to stab Israeli soldiers. He was shot and killed before he could harm anyone. The attack came two days after a similar attempted stabbing in the same area. The attacker in that incident was also shot and killed.
Thursday’s second attack took place near Nablus around 1:20 p.m., when Israeli soldiers who were driving through the area noticed an object being thrown on the road. When they got out of their vehicle to determine who threw the object, a Palestinian terrorist wielding a knife approached them and stabbed a company commander at the IDF’s main officer training base, Bahad 1. The officer was lightly wounded and received medical treatment at the scene.
