An IDF soldier was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist Tuesday morning in the southern hills of Hebron in the first such attack in over 24 hours.

The soldier was stabbed during a “violent riot” in the village of Beir Awwa, the army said. The terrorist was shot and killed during the attack.

The soldier, identified as a commander in the Givati infantry brigade, sustained light injures. He was treated at the scene by paramedics and transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.


The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry identified the terrorist as 24-year-old Adi Hashem al Masalmeh from Beit Awwa.

In a separate incident, an Israeli was killed near Kiryat Arba, located south of Hebron, after Palestinian hurled objects at his car. The man was hit by a passing vehicle when he exited his car following the attack.

Magen David Adom paramedics administered treatment at the scene and the man was airlifted to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The current outbreak of violence and terror hitting Israel has injured or killed dozens of Israelis in cities across the country.
