A terrorist armed with three knives attached to a stick reached the Gush Etzion junction and tried to stab IDF servicemen operating in the area. We are grateful that the terrorist was neutralized without any casualties.
“I was standing at the northern hitchhiking position at the Gush Etzion junction, to protect the civilians who were there,” said Corporal E., a fighter from the Nachshon Battalion of the Kfir Brigade who neutralized the terrorist. “When I recognized that he had drawn a knife, I shot and detained the perpetrator. I have been here in operational employment with my battalion friends for about a month. We stay alert at all times to prevent such cases, and we will continue to protect the residents of Gush Etzion and to protect our home. ”
