An IDF soldier escaped injury on Saturday morning when a 16-year-old Palestinian tried to stab him on a bus in the West Bank.
The incident took place at the Tunnel road checkpoint between the Gush Etzion settlements and Jerusalem during a standard IDF security check.
The passengers of the bus were asked to disembark in order for the soldiers to carry out their search of the vehicle when one of them tried to stab a soldier with a knife, the IDF spokesperson said.
The soldier, a military policeman, succeeded to frustrate the attacker with the help of a civilian security guard.
The suspect was arrested and security forces were interrogating him.
