Early Monday night there was an attempt to stab a soldier in the neighborhood Abu Sanina in Hebron during patrols in the area.
The terrorist was neutralized by security forces without gunshots, was arrested and taken to investigation.
It was the third attack of the day, the second in Hebron.
Following a spate of nine attacks over the past four days in Jerusalem and the West Bank, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for heightened security.
