Israeli soldier stabbed in Ramallah

JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli soldier was attacked and stabbed by a group of Palestinians during an operation in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The soldier following Monday night’s attack was taken to Hadassah-Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem and is in stable condition.

Gunfire from Israeli troops responding to the attack injured three Palestinians.

On Tuesday, Israeli troops foiled a terror attack along the Gaza border, defusing a powerful bomb planted next to the security fence, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The bomb was meant to attack soldiers patrolling near the security fence separating Israel from the Gaza Strip, according to the IDF, which said in a statement that the bomb was planted at the end of last week, using the cover of heavy fog.
