IDF Soldier Stabbed at West Bank Checkpoint

Another terror attack struck the Holy Land this morning. The Times of Israel’s Judah Ari Gross reports that a female IDF soldier was stabbed and wounded by a female Palestinian terrorist at a West Bank checkpoint:

Other security personnel in the area quickly pounced on the Palestinian assailant, subduing her, according to police.

There were no reports of gunfire used in the arrest.

Medics treated the victim on the scene before taking her to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service…
