IDF artillery corps soldiers fired on Thursday afternoon at a terrorist who attempted to stab soldiers near the Gush Etzion town of Tekoa. The terrorist was shot to death.
There were no Israeli casualties. Several units of police and IDF soldiers arrived at the scene.
Last week, an 20-year-old IDF soldier was injured in a ramming attack. Initial investigations showed that the terrorist attempted to ram into a pillbox checkpoint, knocking over a streetlight and injuring the soldier.
The terrorist, who was armed with a knife, was immediately neutralized by security forces.
