( A female Israeli soldier was stabbed in the neck near Geva Binyamin in Judea and Samaria, before another female soldier shot the attacker and detained an alleged accomplice. Also on Wednesday, a car-ramming attack injured four Israelis.

According to a preliminary investigation, one of the Palestinian terrorists in the first incident stabbed and critically wounded a female soldier, and then ran toward the other soldier with the knife still in his hand, leading her to shoot him from short range.

In the car-ramming, which also took place in Judea and Samaria, Israel's Channel 2 reported that Israeli passengers who exited their vehicle after coming under attack from stone-throwers proceeded to get run over by a passing vehicle. The four wounded Israelis were transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, with one in serious condition, according to the Magen David Adom emergency response organization.
In yet another incident on Wednesday, a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip, exploding in open territory in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council near Israel's border fence with Gaza. There have been no reports of injuries or damage.
