On Monday morning it was reported that a soldier was stabbed at the village of Tzur Yitzhak near Kfar Saba. Later in the day, the IDF began investigating the possibility that the soldier invented the story of the stabbing.

Magen David Adom was treating a 20-year-old man at the scene who sustained a minor injury with a stab wound to his upper body. MDA evacuated the victim to hospital. 

Police were searching the area for the suspect.

Earlier Monday, police pulled over what it thought was a suspicious vehicle driving near Latrun towards Jerusalem. After ordering the car to pull over, police discovered seven Arabs, residents of the West Bank, some who were holding fake Israeli identity cards.

Upon searching the suspects' possessions, police found a small sharpened knife in the belongings of a 17-year-old youth. Police called for backup and arrested the suspects and their driver, a resident from southern Israel.
