Two Israelis were wounded on Sunday night in a Palestinian stabbing attack at the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, located east of Jerusalem in Judea.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the victims, both security guards, at the scene before evacuating them, fully conscious and in stable condition, to the capital’s Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus.

MDA said a 24-year-old woman was in good-to-moderate condition, while a man in his 20s sustained minor wounds in the attack.

Israeli security forces reportedly shot and neutralized the terrorist. His condition was not immediately clear.

On Saturday, an Israel Defense Forces soldier was seriously injured in a vehicular assault near the al-Fawwar camp, located south of Hebron in Judea.

The victim, a reserve soldier from the IDF’s 7018th Battalion, was treated on the scene before being evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva.

The attack took place close to where five Israeli soldiers were injured, including one seriously, in a similar attack on Friday. That attack occurred on the Route 60 highway, close to the Adorayim Junction, just north of the town of Otniel.

On Thursday night, two Israelis were wounded in a stabbing attack at the Mizmoriya checkpoint near Bethlehem, just south of Jerusalem.

Israel’s Kan News public broadcaster said the terrorist arrived by car from the direction of Jerusalem, got out of the vehicle and stabbed security officers guarding the checkpoint.
