Two people have been injured in a stabbing attack at El-Aroub Junction in the Gush Etzion region near Hevron.

The victims are both Israeli men in their twenties, and were lightly wounded in the attack.

Magen David Adom paramedics are on the scene, as are security forces.

The terrorist was shot and seriously injured by IDF soldiers responding to the incident, which marks the latest attack in the wave of Arab terrorism sweaping Israel.

Despite ebbing significantly over the past several months, recent weeks have seen several knife, gun and car ramming attacks.

Just yesterday, an attempt by an Arab terrorist to bomb the Jerusalem Light Rail was foiled by alert security guards.

Last Thursday, an Arab terrorist was shot as he attempted to stab Border Police officers carrying out an arrest operation.

Days earlier, a Jewish motorist was shot and wounded by terrorists near Tekoa in Gush Etzion.
