(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A 43-year-old Israel Police officer was lightly wounded on Thursday morning when he was stabbed by a 14-year-old female Palestinian terrorist in the village of Al-Auja in the Jordan Valley, north of Jericho.

At the time of the stabbing, the police officer was directing traffic on Route 90 after a collapsed tree had blocked part of the road. After the stabbing, the wounded police officer chased the attacker and arrested her without firing a shot. The police officer, who suffered a shoulder wound, was later transported to Emek Medical Center in Afula for treatment.

Overnight Wednesday, shots were fired at an Israeli police vehicle near the community of Rehelim in Samaria. One police officer was lightly wounded and was treated at the scene. Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops launched searches in the area in an effort to capture the perpetrators.

On Wednesday evening, two soldiers from the IDF’s Kfir Brigade were wounded—one moderately and one lightly—in a stabbing attack carried out by two Palestinian terrorists at an isolated military position near the community of Har Bracha in Samaria. The terrorists were able to flee the scene and IDF troops launched searches in the area in an effort to capture them.
