Vigilante Israeli forces were successful in thwarting a Palestinian terror attack.
A Palestinian terrorist was shot and seriously wounded on Tuesday after he tried to stab IDF soldiers posted just south of Shechem (Nablus), in Samaria.
No Israelis were harmed in the incident.
The terrorist was evacuated in critical condition to an Israeli hospital.
Yossi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council, lauded the IDF soldiers for their prompt and professional response.
“These attempts to hinder our routine will fail,” he stated, adding the communities in Judea and Samaria will continue to grow and flourish, despite attempts to harm them.
The site of the attack, the Bahad 3 junction, has been the scene of multiple Palestinian terror attacks in the past months.
Tuesday’s attack comes after similar stabbing attacks by Palestinians against Israelis on Sunday and Monday.
These attacks are the latest in a long series of Palestinian terror attacks, which have plagued Israelis for more than a year, claiming the lives of 47 victims and wounding over 650.
