Two IDF soldiers were stabbed and lightly injured near the West Bank village of Al-Aroub, north of Hebron on Highway 60, on Monday.

The attacker was shot by one of the wounded soldiers, according to media reports. He was in serious condition.

The two soldiers, who were hurt in the head and hand, respectively, received medical treatment at the scene and were taken to the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem neighborhood.

The stabber was also taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, also in the capital.

Since October, 35 Israelis and four foreign nationals have been killed in a spate of car-ramming, stabbing, shooting, and bombing attacks. Some 215 Palestinians have also been killed, most of whom Israel says were involved in attacks or clashes.

On Sunday, a Palestinian from the Hebron area attempted to board the light rail in Jerusalem with explosives and knives in his bag. He was stopped by police and arrested.
