Stabbing Attack in Kiryat Arba Thwarted; Soldiers Safe

Just after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, a teenage Palestinian terrorist tried stabbing an IDF solder at the Elias Junction near Kiryat Arba, a suburb of Hebron.

No Israeli civilians or soldiers were injured, the army said, adding that he was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

An Israeli military medic then cared for his wounds until Magen David Adom emergency medics arrived from Jerusalem.

Daradat is reportedly in moderate condition. The terrorist, 15-year-old Isa Dardaat from a Palestinian village near Hebron, attempted to stab an IDF soldier.

Last month, an Israeli counter-terrorism police unit teamed up with the IDF to arrest a Palestinian terror cell in Hebron.

The flashpoint city of Hebron, where Palestinians live in close proximity to settlers who are guarded by Israeli troops, has been the scene of numerous stabbings and attempted stabbings since a wave of attacks carried out by Palestinians began in October 2015.
