A Palestinian terrorist stabbed two IDF soldiers outside the Tzifrin military base near Rishon LeTzion in central Israel on Tuesday morning. One of the victims is listed in serious condition.
Reports indicated the assailant was quickly “neutralized” by armed civilians before being taken by police for questioning.
Earlier in the morning, gunfire from Palestinian Authority-controlled areas in northern Samaria hit several Israeli homes in the community of Ma’ale Gilboa, adjacent to the biblical Mount Gilboa.
Islamic Jihad claimed credit for the shooting.
On Monday, Israeli forces captured two Palestinian terrorists involved in a shooting attack in the volatile village of Huwara last month.
In that attack, the terrorists opened fire on IDF soldiers from a passing vehicle, wounding one seriously and another moderately. It was the third shooting attack against Israelis in Huwara in the month of March.
