An IDF soldier was wounded lightly this morning after being attacked by a female terrorist at the entrance to the community of Mevo Dotan in northern Samaria.

Initial investigations found that a female terrorist approached a soldier, who shouted at her to stop.

The terrorist managed to stab the soldier and wound him. He was taken to Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera with light-to-moderate wounds to the upper body.

The terrorist was shot seconds after the attack and suffered critical wounds.

Head of the Samaria Council, Yossi Dagan, said, "The attempts to break the residents of Samaria will not succeed. This time, as well, soldiers showed exceptional resourcefulness at the scene. We thank the soldiers and commanders for their resourcefulness and expect a forceful response to attackers and those who send them."
