By mid-afternoon Wednesday, Palestinian terrorists had already committed two attacks, bringing the count since the beginning of the year to 780.
Early afternoon on Wednesday, a Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab IDF soldiers in Hebron near the entrance to the Jewish community of Tel Rumeida. IDF soldiers, performing a routine security check, noticed that the man was furtively pulling out a knife and immediately shot him in self-defense.
Shortly afterwards, a 40-year-old woman sustained moderate wounds after being stabbed in the back at a shopping center at the Gush Etzion junction in Judea. Medics rushed her to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem.
Two terrorists stabbed a 19-year-old soldier in the face at the same location on Tuesday afternoon, moderately wounding him. That victim, too, was rushed to Shaare Zedek. Security forces shot and killed the terrorists.
The wave of Arab terror throughout Israel has intensified over the past month, with more than half of the number of attacks against Israelis since the beginning of 2015 – now 780 out of 1,705 – committed since September.
