A terrorist on Friday afternoon attacked soldiers with a knife near Hevron, leaving an IDF soldier lightly wounded.

The terrorist is likely dead. The soldier was rushed to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Earlier on Friday, two terrorists, a male and female, tried to commit a terror attack by running people over with their car at the Elias Junction near Kiryat Arba.

The two terrorists were shot by IDF forces, while no Israelis were injured.

The attack comes just after another terror attempt at Damascus Gate at the Old City of Jerusalem, where a terrorist, a Jordanian resident in his twenties, arrived near the Gate, and advanced quickly towards border police at the scene, a knife in his hand.

The fighters saw the terrorist as he approached and shot him, killing him.

The attack comes after a recent decline in stabbing attacks, though Arab terror in general has, by no means, declined.
