Palestinian terrorist wounds two Israelis in Hebron stabbing attack

Hebron continues to be the focal point of Palestinian terrorism, as two Israelis were wounded in yet another stabbing attack in the city.  

A Palestinian stab and wounded two Israelis on Wednesday in the city of Hebron.

One victim, an IDF soldier, was moderately wounded in the head and upper body, while the second victim, a civilian, sustained light stab wounds to his leg. They were evacuated to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem.

The civilian is the son of former Member of Knesset (MK) Orit Struk.

The terrorist was shot dead by security forces.

Hebron and its environs have been the site of multiple attacks in the current wave of terror, most of them stabbings.

The most recent previous attack in Hebron occurred on Monday, when a terrorist attacked an Israeli citizen inside the city. He was critically wounded and is still fighting for his life.

Israeli security forces have been operating in the city in an attempt to stem the attacks. Over the weekend, the IDF closed down printing houses in Hebron for their incitement to violence and raided several other terror sites in the area.

This incident was the latest in a long series of almost daily Palestinian terror attacks that have plagued Israelis over the course of almost three months, claiming the lives of 21 victims and wounding some 220.
