( Four Palestinian terrorists armed with knives were shot and killed as they attempted to stab Israel Defense Forces soldiers in two separate incidents in Judea on Thursday.

The first attack was on IDF reservists guarding the Gush Etzion junction. They were approached by three Palestinians, all armed with knives. The IDF said on Twitter, “3 attackers armed with knives attempted to stab soldiers guarding at Gush Etzion Junction. Forces thwarted attack & shot assailants.”

Less than two hours later, a fourth Palestinian terrorist attempted a similar attack on IDF forces at the Beit Anoun Junction, outside of Hebron. 

No Israelis were injured in the attacks.
