Cpl. M., the soldier who neutralized the terrorist in today's attack on the Jewish community in Hevron, describes how he operated during the incident.

"During a routine patrol of the Jewish community in Hevron, my officer and I from the Coordination and Liaison Administration were walking, when suddenly I heard shouts of 'Allahu Akbar' ("god is greater than") behind me.

"I turned around and saw the terrorist a meter from my face, aiming toward my neck and trying to stab me with pruning shears. I moved my (female) officer out of the way and at the moment when I saw I was unable to physically neutralize him, I stepped back, loaded the weapon and neutralized him."
