Palestinian assailant stabs Israeli border guard in Hebron


An Israeli border guard was stabbed by a Palestinian assailant near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

The border guard was lightly wounded in the head during Monday evening’s attack and taken to the hospital.

Another border guard shot the Palestinian assailant in the chest during the attack, seriously wounding him, according to reports.

It is unknown if the assailant is a member of a terrorist organization.

Monday’s attack came days after an Israeli soldier was killed by a Palestinian gunman that infiltrated the border with Gaza.
