A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and lightly wounded an IDF soldier near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Monday.

The lightly wounded soldier and other forces present shot and killed the terrorist. The wounded soldier was treated at the scene for a skin-deep wound in the chest.

This incident comes amid a spate of Palestinian terror attacks in recent weeks. Last Monday, a terrorist was shot and killed after attempting a stabbing attack in Samaria.

That same day, Israeli Supreme Court Justice David Mintz narrowly escaped a carjacking by three Arabs armed with hammers at a junction on Route 463 in Samaria.

On Thursday, Oct. 11, an Arab terrorist wounded two Israelis in a stabbing attack in Samaria. The terrorist initially eluded capture. He was later seized by Israeli forces.
