A Palestinian was shot and wounded on Sunday as he attempted to stab an Israeli couple at a gas station near Mishor Adumim, an industrial park near the city of M’aale Adumim in Judea.

The terrorist approached a couple, a man and a woman, with a screwdriver in his hand and attacked them. An Israeli citizen drew his weapon and then shot and neutralized the terrorist.

No Israelis incurred bodily harm in the attack, but three were treated by medics for shock.

The terrorist, in critical condition, was taken to an Israeli hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.

Police have launched an investigation into the incident.
