A female terrorist attacked soldiers of the Givati Brigade at a bus stop on Route 5 near the town of Barkan, just west of Ariel.
After slowly approaching the soldiers, the terrorist can be seen suddenly lunging at them brandishing a knife.
The soldiers managed, however, to evade the terrorist and neutralize her with a shot to the torso.
The terrorist was wounded in the chest and in critical condition. After receiving treatment on the scene she was transported to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva.
