Terror struck Israel today, on what is the most joyous holiday on the Jewish calendar. As the Jewish community of Hebron prepared for its Purim parade, The Jerusalem Post's Tovah Lazaroff reports that two terrorists stabbed and wounded an IDF soldier before being neutralized:

Two Palestinian assailants stabbed and wounded an IDF soldier at a checkpoint by the Tel Reumeida neighborhood of Hebron on Thursday morning.

Other soldiers at the scene shot and killed the two terrorists.

The soldier was in light-to-moderate condition with stab wounds in the shoulder and hand. Magen David Adom transported him from the scene to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The stabbing occurred before the Jewish community in the West Bank city of Hebron was set to start its annual Purim parade in that location.
