A terrorist stabbed an Israeli soldier on Thursday morning as he sat in his car at the Yitzhar Junction, close to Huwara and Nablus in Samaria.

The victim was evacuated in moderate condition to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah.

The assailant fled the scene on foot.

Israeli forces launched a manhunt and set up roadblocks in the area, and a suspect was subsequently apprehended in the nearby Arab town of Awarta.
