Border police officers thwarted a stabbing attack at the Tapuah junction at the West Bank on Saturday, according to the Police Spokesperson's Unit.
A 20-years-old Palestinian arrived at a Border Police checkpoint at the junction, and raised the suspicion of the officers.
The officers opened in pursuit after the suspect who was in possession of a knife. An officer in a police car at the scene blocked his path, as the terrorist attempted to open the door and stab the driver.
The police officer in the vehicle opened fire and wounded the terrorist, who was later evacuated to the hospital.
No other injuries were sustained.
