Terrorist shot and killed, victim evacuated to hospital.
A Palestinian assailant stabbed and lightly wounded a Border Police officer near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Saturday morning.
Magen David Adom paramedics were treating the man, in his twenties, who was lightly injured with stab wounds to his upper body,
and were evacuating him to hospital in Jerusalem.
An initial investigation of the attack showed that the suspect, a resident of Hebron, arrived at the Pharmacy Checkpoint at the entrance to Kiryat Arba, and when Border Police forces at the crossing asked him to identify himself he pulled out a knife and attacked one of the men with it.
