A Palestinian terrorist attempted to carry out a stabbing attack in the Gush Etzion area south of Jerusalem on Wednesday morning.
The female terrorist approached IDF soldiers at the Al-Aroub Junction holding a knife. The soldiers opened fire and neutralized her.
Fortunately, there were no injuries to Israeli security forces.
The terrorist, who died of her injuries, was later identified by the PA as a 31-year-old recently released security prisoner who served a three-year jail sentence in Israel for terror-related offenses.
