A stabbing attack was averted close to Kikar Hashomron Tuesday morning, b’chasdei Shamayim. The terrorist was neutralized by two IDF soldiers.

In security camera footage the terrorist is seen pulling out a knife and running toward the soldiers who responded with rapid fire.

The head of the Shomron Regional Council, Yossi Dagan criticized the government: “The entire people of Israel stands behind the IDF soldiers, the Israeli police and the security forces who prevent daily murderous attacks in Samaria and throughout the country, and the same thing must be said clearly in front of this government, which loses its deterrence again and again: We have woken up again to another morning in which PA terrorists act without fear, murdering Israelis in broad daylight.

“The Israeli government is losing deterrence. This is already clear to everyone. The Palestinian Authority is the instigator and emissary of these attacks. Until the political echelon instructs the security forces to operate inside the villages to stop senior Palestinian Authority officials sending out these terrorists, we will wake up to many more such mornings. The government must regroup and change direction. “
