A terrorist attempted to stab Israeli security forces at the Hassam Shoter checkpoint in Hebron on Sunday, the IDF reported.
The soldiers fired at the terrorist, who was treated by Red Crescent paramedics and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Moments earlier, a stabbing was reported close to the Palestinian town of Beit Sachur near Bethlehem. The victim, a tourist, was very lightly injured. Though the incident was initially thought to be a terror attack, police later reported that the incident was apparently criminal and involved a monetary dispute.
The victim and the stabber reportedly knew each other prior to the attack. The suspect was arrested.
In both incidents, police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the stabbings.
