An Israeli soldier was moderately wounded on Sunday in a Palestinian terrorist stabbing at a gas station close to the Rantis Crossing, located west of Ramallah.
Magen David Adom emergency medical personnel treated the fully conscious 49-year-old victim at the scene before evacuating him to the hospital.
The terrorist fled to the nearby village of Rantis, where Israeli forces conducting searches apprehended him.
Late last month, four Israelis were killed and six other people were wounded in a terrorist shooting on Weizman Boulevard at the main entrance to Jerusalem.
Hamas’s “military” wing took responsibility for the attack, identifying the perpetrators as “jihad-waging Qassam martyrs” while calling for “escalation of resistance [i.e., terrorism].”
On Nov. 16, Hamas terrorists shot and killed an IDF soldier and wounded five other members of the security forces near the “tunnel road” checkpoint between Gush Etzion and southern Jerusalem.
Earlier in November, an Israeli-American Border Police officer was killed in a terrorist attack near the Herod’s Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City.
