A female Arab terrorist tried to stab a Border Police officer adjacent to Hevron's Cave of Machpelah on Sunday afternoon, but was repulsed by the officer who shot her.

The terrorist approached a Border Police post adjacent to the holy site, and suddenly whipped out a knife and tried to stab one of the officers on duty.

The combat soldier responded by shoving the terrorist away and shooting her, critically wounding the would-be stabber.

Fortunately she was unable to inflict any wounds thanks to the quick response.
