Gush Etzion Regional Council head Davidi Perl said on Monday he was relieved no one had been seriously harmed when a Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli civilian near a military checkpoint.
He thanked the IDF soldiers for their quick reactions that prevented any further harm from the attack.
“I am asking the Defense Minister to do everything possible to restore quiet and security to the residents of the area,” Perl said.
“The residents of Gush Etzion are determined to continue their lives as normal. We will do everything we can to make sure that they proposer and flourish,” he said.
