Soldiers for the Golani Brigade’s 51st Battalion thwarted a second stabbing terror attack in two days carried by Muslim Arab cousins outside the Samaria Territorial Brigade’s base on Wednesday.
The two cousins from the Balata neighborhood near Shechem ran towards IDF troops stationed in the square outside the base while wielding a knife in the early afternoon of Wednesday and Tuesday.
The soldiers shot and neutralized both terrorists, who were both taken to the Beilinson Hospital at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva in serious condition.
In both instances, no one was hurt on the Israeli side.
Earlier Wednesday, IDF soldiers arrested a 24-year-old females Muslim Arab terrorist at the Gilbert Junction in Hevron who approached them while brandishing a knife. She confessed in her questioning to planning to carry out a stabbing attack.
