A female Arab terrorist attempted to stab an IDF soldier stationed outside the Jewish town of Einav in northern Samaria early Thursday afternoon.

The terrorist approached a group of soldiers standing at a junction while brandishing a knife in her hand, prompting them to open fire and eliminate her.

There were no Israeli casualties.

It is the first stabbing attack since Monday, when a soldier was lightly wounded by an Arab terrorist in Tel Aviv.

The attacker was pursued and eventually subdued by passersby, and handed over to police.
