Two Arab terrorists attempted to stab Border Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron on Monday afternoon.
They were shot and very seriously injured before they could harm anyone. One terrorist was declared dead at the scene.
The two terrorists are Hevron residents who came to the site intending to carry out an attack on the Border Police forces there. On pulling out their knives, the Border Police at the scene shot at the terrorists.
This was the second stabbing attack of Monday, with an east Jerusalem resident stabbing two Israel Police officers in the morning before one of them managed to draw his weapon and shoot their attacker.
