No Israelis were hurt in the attack.

Border Police officers fired warning shots and called on the 19-year-old woman to stop as she approached them, but she refused.

“This additional attempt to hurt the routine of our lives, not to mention that it comes during one of our holidays, will not succeed,” Samarian Regional Council Chief Yossi Dagan said in a statement following the attack.

Tourist activities in Samaria will continue as planned, he said.

"The tens of thousands of day trippers, who are currently at the many tourist attractions in the Shomron, are making their voices heard with their legs," Dagan said.
