A stabbing attack took place at the Ariel Junction in the Samaria region, on Thursday morning, March 17.

The attack took place when two terrorists cut the victims throat as the victim, yet to be identified, alighted a bus in Ariel Square. Paramedics who found the victim in serious condition and suffering from severe bleeding, temporarily blocked the bleeding by applying pressure to the wound. However, the victim remained fully conscious before being taken to hospital.

The IDF spokesperson’s unit confirmed that both of the terrorists were shot and killed at the scene by soldiers who were stationed nearby.

A Magen David Adom (MDA) spokesperson said: “When we arrived at the scene we saw a young 20-year-old girl lying on the sidewalk and fully conscious. She sustained a number of stab wounds to her upper body. We immediately provided first aid treatment, among which included stopping the bleeding. She was then transported to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva in moderate-serious condition.”

Yohanan Weiss, a Hatzalah paramedic who arrived at the scene told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that stopping the victim’s bleeding was of immediate and utmost importance.

“We got there and the most important thing was to stop the bleeding then and there,” said Weiss to TPS. “There were two other MDA paramedics who provided life saving treatment. The terrorists were shot there on the spot.”
