Two attempted attacks within three hours in Judea and Samaria: Terrorists opened fire on Monday afternoon at an IDF patrol car near Kibbutz Meirav. No one was injured, but the vehicle was hit.

IDF forces pursued the suspects.

Before that, terrorists from the town of Dayr Sharaf in Samaria opened fire toward a military post located on the outskirts of the town. Following searches, shell casings were located, and a hit to the post was identified. No IDF injuries were reported in this incident as well.

Earlier in the day, a terrorist was neutralized after he attempted a stabbing attack at the Mizmoria checkpoint near the Har Homa neighborhood in Jerusalem on the road to Gush Etzion. No injuries were reported.

At around 8:00 AM, the terrorist, a 47-year-old Palestinian, came from the Bethlehem area, arrived at the checkpoint, and pulled a knife in the direction of Border Police officers at the checkpoint.
