An IDF soldier was lightly wounded in an attempted stabbing attack Wednesday afternoon near the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar.
The stabbed soldier shot and killed the assailant at the scene near Nablus.
According to the IDF, the incident began as car-full of Palestinians hurled rocks at passing vehicles.
Security forces then pursued the vehicle before one Palestinian exited the car and proceeded to stab a nearby soldier, wounding him in light condition.
During attempts to stop the assailant while he was in his vehicle, security forces rammed the car. There were no injuries as a result of the collision.
The wounded soldier was taken to a hospital for medial treatment.
