Late yesterday, IDF troops thwarted an attempted terrorist stabbing. The Times of Israel reports that a female terrorist tried to attack soldiers at a bus stop before being stopped:

The dashcam footage recorded by a driver passing shows a young woman in a hijab approach the soldiers with a knife behind her back. As she raises the blade above her head, the soldiers back away with their weapons drawn.

The woman continues to walk towards them with the knife drawn for several meters before she is shot in the abdomen by the soldiers.

While grainy footage of attacks are often caught on security cameras, the video captured Tuesday is unique in both being clearly visible and seemingly showing the attack from beginning to end.

The attacker, whose identity was not immediately known, received medical treatment at the scene before being taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment, a military spokesperson said.
