Palestinian shot dead trying to stab female soldier
A group of soldiers guarding a road junction near the northern West Bank town of Ariel was set upon on Tuesday by a knife-wielding Palestinian who attempted to stab a woman soldier and commander multiple times. While she was struggling against the assailant, the soldiers shot him dead, the IDF reported. The soldiers belonged to the mixed-gender Ram Battalion of the IDF Home Front Command. The girl soldier was a new immigrant from Britain.
