The Arab terrorist responsible for the stabbing attack near Mevo Dotan Thursday succumbed to her injuries Friday morning, hospital officials said.

The 16-year old terrorist from the town of Yaabad, near Jenin, stabbed a soldier at the entrance to the town of Mevo Dotan in Samaria Thursday morning, leaving him in light-to-moderate condition.

Security forces on the scene opened fire on the terrorist, leaving her in critical condition.

Both the soldier and the terrorist were evacuated to Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera for treatment

Samaria Regional Council chief Yossi Dagan praised the soldiers on the scene for their quick response to the attack.

"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."
