Terrorist Neutralized After Attempting To Stab Soldier Near Shechem


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — A terrorist approached soldiers at an army position near Shechem Tuesday morning and attempted to stab one of them. Other soldiers at the scene opened fire on the terrorist, neutralizing him. There were no injuries to Israeli security forces in the attack.

An IDF spokesman said that “following the initial report regarding the stabbing attack adjacent to the entrance to the city of Nablus[Shechem], an assailant armed with a knife charged toward IDF soldiers stationed in the area. The assailant attempted to stab the soldiers, who responded with live fire and neutralized the assailant. No IDF injuries were reported.”

Samaria Regional Council chairman Yossi Dagan criticized the Bennett government following the foiled terror attack.

“The entire nation of Israel backs the IDF soldiers, Israel Police, and the security forces who prevent murderous terror attacks day after day in Samaria and across the country, but at the same time, we have to say things clearly to this government, which over and over again fails to prevent attacks: Once again, we wake up to a morning in which Palestinian Authority terrorists are trying, without concern, to murder Israelis in broad daylight.”

“The Israeli government has lost our deterrence. This is obvious to everyone. The Palestinian Authority is funding incitement and is sending terrorists to these attacks. And things won’t change until the political leadership instructs the security forces to operate in these villages. Arrest the senior Palestinian Authority leaders who send these terrorists. Until that happens, we will continue to wake up to many more mornings like this. This government needs to wake up.”
