Terrorists continue their campaign of violence against Israel with yet another stabbing today. The Jerusalem Post's Yaakov Lappin reports that a terrorist stabbed and injured two IDF soldiers at a West Bank checkpoint before being stopped:

A stabbing attack occurred at the Al Aroub IDF checkpoint on Route 60, south of the West Bank's Gush Etzion Junction on Monday, the army said.

Two IDF soldiers sustained light stabbing wounds after a Palestinian knife attacker struck. Soldiers on the scene shot and seriously wounded the attacker.

Magen David Adom reported that its medical crews were treating the two lightly wounded men in their 20s at the scene. Both victims and the attacker were evacuated to hospitals for further medical treatment.

The attacker was named as Mustafa Brada'yeh, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an. Brada'yeh comes from Beit Fajjar where he worked as a mathematics teacher.

According to initial reports, the assailant arrived at the scene with a knife and a screwdriver, using the later to stab the soldiers.
