Palestinian terrorists carried out two terror attacks within hours on Sunday, one in Hebron and the other in Gush Etzion, despite Netanyahu’s efforts to calm the situation.

A female Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab Israeli security forces in Hebron on Sunday and was shot dead.

The terrorist was reportedly waiting to enter the Cave of the Patriarchs and had to pass a security checkpoint. She was acting suspicious, and security personnel asked her for her identification card. In response, she drew a knife and approached them while shouting. The soldiers called on her to stop, and when she refused to do so, shot her dead.

No Israelis were harmed in the incident.

Earlier on in the day, an Israeli civilian was moderately injured in a stabbing attack in Gush Etzion.

Palestinians attacked the man’s car with rocks, and when he stopped and exited his car, he was stabbed by one of them.

The victim, 58, was taken to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem for treatment with stab wounds in his upper body, and a head injury as a result of the rock throwing.

The terrorists, reportedly disguised in Jewish Ultra-Orthodox garb, fled the scene. Security forces launched a manhunt for the terrorists.

There are reports that the victim shot at his attackers and wounded them.

This terror attack followed the pattern of similar ones previously carried out by Palestinian terrorists.

In total, Palestinians have carried out 44 stabbings attacks, four shootings and five vehicular terror attacks since September 14, when the latest wave of Palestinian violence broke out.
