A 20-year-old IDF soldier suffered moderate-to-serious injuries on Friday evening in a terrorist stabbing attack at the Qalandiya checkpoint near Jerusalem.

Police said the terrorist arrived at the checkpoint on foot and then stabbed the soldier. He was shot and killed by Border Police officers who were at the scene.

An IDF medical team and Magen David Adom paramedics treated the soldier and evacuated him to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

Friday evening’s attack came hours after an armed terrorist tried to stab a brigade commander near Negohot.

Soldiers who were at the scene managed to stop him in time.
