Border Guard officer stabbed by Palestinian terrorist near Cave of the Patriarchs; terrorist shot, severely wounded

A Border Guard officer sustained light injuries Monday evening when he was stabbed by a Palestinian near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. During the confrontation the officer shot the terrorist, who was severely wounded.

According to an initial investigation, the officer was stabbed in his upper body.

On Friday Golani Staff-Sergeant Netanel Moshiashvili (21) of Ashkelon was killed by a Palestinian terrorist near the Gaza-Israel border.

The incident took place at around 5 am, when the gunman, under cover of the heavy fog, was able to reach the security fence, cut it and infiltrate Israel.

A Golani force was scrambled to the area and engaged the terrorist, who opened fire. The terrorist – later identified as Ahmed Abu Nasser, from the border village of Abassan – was killed. The gunfight left Moshiashvili, one of the force´s medics, mortally wounded. IDF medics attempted to stabilize his condition, but he succumbed to his wounds.
