Jerusalem, 2 May, 2021 (TPS) -- An Arab terrorist attacked and attempted to stab Israelis at the Gush Etzion Junction on Sunday morning.

The terrorist, a female said to be in her 60s, was shot and wounded by IDF soldiers securing the site.

No Israelis were injured in the attack.

The terrorist reportedly sustained injuries to her legs and was evacuated in serious condition by an IDF medical team to an Israeli hospital for further treatment.

The Gush Etzion Junction has been the scene of multiple terror attacks.

This attack follows a similar incident that occurred at a junction just north of Sunday’s attack. An Arab terrorist armed with a bottle attacked an Israeli policeman who was directing traffic at the Efrat Junction on Friday.

After firing warning shots, the policeman shot the terrorist and neutralized him.

No Israelis were injured in this incident as well.
