Israeli soldiers foiled an attempted terrorist stabbing attack in Samaria Wednesday.

The incident took place on Route 55, just outside of the Israeli town of Kedumim just before noon Wednesday morning, when an Arab terrorist armed with a knife approached an army position and attempted to stab a soldier.

IDF forces on the scene opened fire and neutralized the terrorist.

No Israelis were wounded in the foiled attack.

"A short while ago, an armed assailant attempted to carry out a stabbing attack on Route 55 adjacent to the town of Kedumim," an IDF spokesperson said. "The assailant, armed with a knife, arrived at an IDF military post and attempted to stab an IDF soldier at the scene. The assailant was neutralized by the soldiers in the area. No IDF injuries were reported."

According to Palestinian Authority's WAFA media outlet, the terrorist, 20-year-old resident of the northern Samaria city of Jenin Aref Abdul Nasser Lahlouh, was fatally wounded.
