Two terrorists approached a military post near the community of Har Bracha in Samara. They stabbed two IDF soldiers and escaped.

One soldier is moderately wounded, while the other is lightly wounded. A military helicopter was sent to bring them both to a hospital.

Security forces are at the scene and searching for the perpetrators.

Early reports indicated that the terrorists stole the soldiers' weapons, though the claim was later found to be incorrect.

In a separate incident, an IDF officer saw two suspicious figures in a valley near the community of Yitzhar. Both have been arrested and taken for questioning.

Though Har Bracha and Yitzhar are close to each other, the two suspects arrested near Yitzhar are not believed to have carried out the Har Bracha attack.

Authorities asked local residents to remain in their homes for safety, but have since lifted the order for Yitzhar.

The Har Bracha emergency response team is currently making phone calls to verify that all of the residents are in their homes and safe.
