'An assailant armed with a knife stabbed two IDF soldiers during routine activity near Al-Arroub,' an Israeli Army (IDF) statement said
A Palestinian stabbed two Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank on Monday before being shot and arrested, the Israeli army said.
"An assailant armed with a knife stabbed two IDF soldiers during routine activity near Al-Arroub," an army statement said, referring to an area south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.
"Forces shot and detained the assailant," it added.
An army spokeswoman confirmed the suspect was a Palestinian and that the two soldiers' wounds were not life-threatening.
Violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories since October last year has killed at least 215 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese.
Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out a knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, according to Israeli authorities.
Others were shot dead during protests and clashes, while some were killed by Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip.
