A suspected Palestinian terrorist stabbed an IDF soldier before snatching his gun on Wednesday in the southern city of Kiryat Gat.
The soldier sustained light wounds, and police shot and killed the attacker who attempted to flee during the incident.
During the event, the culprit snatched the weapon from the hands of the soldier on a bus, before attempting to flee the scene.
Police sappers were on the scene for fear that the Palestinian had been in possession of an explosive device.
The soldier was transported to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.
