Terrorists struck near the entrance to Ariel on Thursday morning, leaving one wounded.

At 11:13 this morning, a 20-year-old female soldier was attacked by two terrorists near a bus stop at the entrance to Ariel near Route 5 in Samaria.

One of the terrorists stabbed the soldier in her throat, leaving her in moderate-to-serious condition.

Security forces quickly responded, killing both of the attackers.

MDA paramedics Yohanan Weiss and Haim Ratzabi described the scene of the attack.

"When we arrived, we saw a young woman around 20 years of age lying on the sidewalk, fully conscious, with stab wounds on her upper body."

"We gave her first-aid, stopping the bleeding, and then evacuated her to Beilinson Hospital."

Emergency response teams evacuated the wounded soldier to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva. Both terrorists were declared dead at the scene.

The bus stops and hitchhiking posts at the entrance to Ariel are heavily used by both Israelis and Palestinian Authority residents.
