A Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab Israeli security personnel at a checkpoint north of Jerusalem on Tuesday, the N12 news site reported.
The incident took place at the Qalandiya crossing, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, where a Palestinian armed with a screwdriver tried to stab a security guard and was shot.
There were no injuries among the security personnel.
According to the report, the terrorist jumped from a truck and rushed the security personnel, who responded immediately and shot him in the stomach.
The assailant transported to a hospital where he was reportedly conscious.
The attack followed the death the previous night of an IDF soldier who was struck in the head by a rock during an arrest operation in the West Bank village of Yabad.
