A female Arab terrorist was neutralized after attempting to launch yet another stabbing attack moments ago in the Central Bus Station in Afula, Magen David Adom (MDA) and ZAKA report. 

The terrorist attempted to stab a security guard at the entrance to the station. She was shot, apparently by security forces at the scene, before being able to complete the attack. She is now wounded and listed in moderate condition. 

Two additional people have been treated for shock; they have been evacuated to HaEmek Hospital in the city.

Footage has emerged showing police forces acting to calm the crowd directly after the attempt. 

Less than 24 hours ago, an Arab stabbed an IDF soldier in the streets of Afula, leaving him with moderate to serious wounds.

The terrorist was overcome by angry Israeli Jewish bystanders, who beat him until police arrived.
