Two Palestinian terrorists were shot Monday while trying to carry out a stabbing attack against a group of soldiers operating near a central Samaria settlement, the military said.

According to available details, a group of eight Palestinians approached soldiers who were on patrol near Amichai, a settlement northeast of Ramallah. Two Palestinians then stormed the troops and tried to stab using what the IDF described as “sharp agricultural instruments.”

The soldiers engaged, opening fire at their assailants and hitting them in the lower extremities.

No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the incident. The wounded terrorists were taken to a hospital in Ramallah, the IDF said.

“A report has been received regarding an attempted stabbing attack next to the town of Amichai in the Binyamin Regional District,” the military said in a statement. “Two terrorists attempted to stab IDF combat soldiers who were operating in the area. The soldiers opened fire at the terrorists. There are no injuries to our soldiers.”

The Palestinian Authority’s WAFA news agency said the two were evacuated to a hospital in Ramallah for treatment. No details regarding their status have been released.
