A terrorist stabbed a young Jewish man at a hitchhiking station at Tapuach Junction in Samaria (Shomron) Tuesday.

The boy suffered light to moderate wounds and was evacuated to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva.

The Judea and Samaria District police said that the terrorist has been caught. The road between Tapuach Junction and Rechelim was closed off to traffic after the attack.

A Border Police force arrested three Palestinian Authority residents Sunday evening at Tapuach Junction after finding seven explosive charges in their bags. A knife was also found in their possession and confiscated.

The three suspects are residents of the village of Balata, near Shechem. They were taken to interrogation, where they admitted that they intended to carry out a terror attack at the junction.
