Attempted Terror Attack at Gush Etzion Junction


1:09PM IL: A lone male terrorist ran towards IDF soldiers stationed at Gush Etzion Junction a short time ago. Soldiers implemented protocol, shouting at him several times to halt. When he did not, a warning shot was fired in the air and when the terrorist continued running towards soldiers, gunfire was directed at his legs.

The wounded terrorist was armed with a knife. He was transported by the IDF to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No additional injuries are reported.

  1. The good news is, he will be out of commission for a couple of weeks. The other good news is, his family won’t be collecting a very large monetary reward from the PA. Shot on the leg….Pu-leeeeze.
