A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and wounded an IDF soldier on Sunday morning at the entrance to Jerusalem.

The soldier, 21, sustained light wounds to his upper body and was taken to a hospital in the capital for treatment.

The terrorist was apprehended by a security guard who was stationed nearby to secure a mall and was then handed over to police.

Jerusalem District Police Chief Commander Moshe Edri commended the security guard for his “alertness, resourcefulness and prompt response which prevented a larger attack outside the central bus station.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the terrorist was a 30-year-old Palestinian.

Also on Sunday, IDF forces prevented two stabbing attacks in Hebron and Samaria.

In Hebron, security forces caught a female Palestinian with a knife during a routine check.

In Samaria, suspicious security guards approached a female Palestinian as she neared an entrance to an Israeli community. She threw a knife she was carrying and ran, but was caught by the guards.

These attacks came after several other attacks over the weekend.
