The army cleared for publication that the victim of the Ariel stabbing that took place on Thursday was an IDF soldier.

The soldier, in her twenties, was stabbed on Thursday morning just as she walked off a bus that had stopped by the Ariel junction in the Samaria region of the West Bank. 

Two young Palestinian assailants had run toward her from the direction of the nearby gas station with knives in their hands, according to a spokeswoman for the Samaria Regional Council.

Soldiers guarding the bus stop by the city shot and killed the two Palestinian assailants.

The family of the soldier had been notified of the incident.
