Further details were expected to be released soon.

Earlier Monday, a female IDF military police officer sustained moderate-to-serious wounds after being stabbed in the neck by a female terrorist at the south Jerusalem security checkpoint Rachel’s Crossing, in what police are deeming a terrorist attack.

Israeli security forces said on Monday afternoon that the terrorist who carried out the attack confessed under interrogation that her intention was to kill an IDF soldier.

The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Misun Musa, a resident of Bethlehem who was not known to security forces and had no previous arrests.
