The Arab terrorist who was shot and seriously wounded after attacking IDF soldiers near Hevron on Monday has died of his injuries.

Mustafa Baradeah, 51, had wounded two soldiers with a knife near Al-Arroub, in Gush Etzion north of Hevron on Monday before being shot, according to the army.

He was taken in critical condition to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem where he died later that day, a spokeswoman said.

Baradeah's brother Ibrahim was killed in April after carrying out an attack with an ax that left a soldier lightly wounded.

Baradeah was from Al-Arroub refugee camp, located about halfway between Bethlehem and Hevron, where many of the attackers in a recent wave of Arab terror have come from.
