A Muslim woman tried to stab 2 IDF soldiers
, but was shot before she could cause harm:
A knife-wielding female Palestinian terrorist was shot at a bus stop near Ariel in Samaria on Tuesday afternoon as she tried to stab two IDF soldiers who were standing there.
Neither of the soldiers, both members of the Givati Brigade's Shaked Battalion, were hurt in the incident, which took place at the Gitai junction, west of Ariel.
The terrorist was seriously wounded by the gunfire and was transported to Rabin Medical Center's Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva for treatment.
The initial investigation of the incident found that the soldiers had seen the terrorist approaching and opened fire at her from close range after she pulled out a knife.
Very quick thinking helped prevent the stabbing.
