By Andrew Friedman/TPS • 1 June, 2017

Jerusalem, 1 June, 2017 (TPS) -- A Palestinian woman stabbed an IDF soldier on Thursday at the entrance to Mevo Dotan, a Jewish community in Samaria. IDF and Magen David Adom paramedics said that they administered first-aid to a 20-year-old soldier with stab wounds to his upper body and then took him to Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera.

The perpetrator reportedly approached the gate of the community and ignored calls to stop. After the stabbing, she was shot by soldiers and is reported to be in critical condition.
