IDF Second Lieutenant Yitzchak Maimon described the incident Wednesday morning in which a terrorist stabbed a sleeping soldier on a bus in Afula. "While waiting for the bus I saw an unusual confrontation and I ran to check what it was," Maimon stated. "I boarded the bus and saw the terrorist in the back seats where the soldier was stabbed a few seconds ago. I aimed my gun at the terrorist and I cocked it," the soldier said. He said the terrorist froze in place and surrendered.
