Israel soldier badly hurt in second Palestinian stabbing attack

A Israel border guard was seriously injured in a Palestinian stabbing attack Saturday night at the entrance to the Machpelah Patriarchs Tomb in Hebron. The terrorist slashed the soldier five times in throat, head and back before the wounded Israeli’s comrades shot him. The Palestinian later died of his wounds. This was the second Palestinian stabbing attack in 24 hours. The Machpelah is holy to Jews and Muslims. Members of the two faiths divide the hours of worship by consent.
