Palestinian tried to stab soldier near Bethlehem — army

While the IDF says reports about a stabbing in the northern West Bank are false, it provides information about an earlier incident at a crossing between Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

The army says that a Palestinian man attempted to stab IDF soldiers at the Rachel Crossing.

The assailant then threw the knife at the soldiers before fleeing the scene. Troops are still searching the area for the attacker, an army spokeswoman says.
