IDF soldiers on Wednesday morning foiled an attempt to infiltrate into the Shomron community of Yitzhar.

The soldiers, who were dispatched to the area after a suspicious figure was seen near the community, identified a female terrorist and shot her.

The terrorist was wounded by the gunfire and was taken for treatment. There were no other casualties.

The latest terror wave continued on Tuesday.  54-year-old Avraham Asher Hasno was murdered during an Arab rock attack near Hevron.

The victim - a resident of nearby Kiryat Arba - was run over by a truck and fatally wounded after being ambushed by Arab rock-throwers.

Hasno’s funeral took place overnight Wednesday at the Kiryat Arba cemetery, with nearly a thousand people taking part.

In another attack on Tuesday, an IDF officer was stabbed and lightly wounded in the Hevron Hills area after being attacked by a terrorist outside the Arab village of Beit Awwa.

The soldier was attacked as his unit performed a security patrol in the area as part of the wider military crackdown on terrorism nationwide.

The terrorist suddenly ran toward the unit with a knife in his hand, stabbing and wounding one soldier before being shot and eliminated on-site.
