A spate of attempted stabbing attacks were thwarted by alert IDF soldiers Sunday morning.

The first attack occurred early Sunday morning, when a knife-wielding female teenage terrorist was arrested after an attempted terror attack at the Tapuach Junction checkpoint.

Armed with a knife, the 17 year old terrorist, a resident of the Arab village of Qusra in Samaria, had positioned herself near a bus stop at the junction, but was discovered and arrested before carrying out any attacks.

When the border police ordered the suspect to halt, she reportedly approached them with her knife, but stopped once the soldiers drew their weapons. No injuries were reported in the attack. 

Later Sunday morning, a 14 year old Arab terrorist attacked Israeli soldiers just outside of Bani Na’im, east of Hevron.

The attacker allegedly opened the door of an IDF jeep, intending to stab the soldiers inside, but was overpowered and taken into custody.

There were no injuries reported in the incident. The young terrorist has been transferred for questioning.

Just minutes after that attack another Palestinian attempted to stab Israeli civilians at an intersection near the town of Huwarra in Samaria.

The terrorist was shot dead on site before he managed to reach his intended victims.
