CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Palestinian terrorists stabbed an IDF soldier in the back Monday, grabbed his rife and ran.
The attack took place at the Almog Junction on the highway between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, not far from the Israeli city of Ma'ale Adumim.
The soldier was transported to Hadassah Hospital for treatment.
Ma'ale Adumim police, who found one of the men hiding out in a bathroom at a nearby gas station, along with the stolen firearm, interrogated him on the spot. He identified himself as a resident of the Palestinian Authority- (PA) controlled city of Ramallah and confessed to working with an accomplice, whom police tracked down a few hours later.
The attack marks the fourth stabbing attempt in recent weeks.
On Saturday morning, a Palestinian terrorist inflicted multiple stab wounds on a nine-year-old child, Tuvia Shtetman, on his way to Shabbat (Sabbath) morning services in his community of Yitzhar.
"On Shabbat morning, the children smelled something burning," the child's father, Adi, said. He told his son to let a neighbor know, not realizing that a Palestinian had infiltrated the community and set fire to a house whose owners were at the morning service in synagogue.
"In the doorway, Tuvia came face to face with a terrorist holding a knife, who arrived to kill Jews," his dad wrote in a statement.
"He stabbed him several times, and Tuvia fought with him and even broke his knife. The terrorist stopped stabbing and threw him into a 13-foot ditch," the statement read.
Following the attack, residents of Yitzhar walked to a nearby Palestinian village, where they allegedly injured five people and spray painted Stars of David on several houses in retaliation for the arson and the stabbing attacks.
