While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

A stabbing attack occurred at the Al Aroub IDF checkpoint on Route 60, south of the West Bank's Gush Etzion Junction on Monday, the army said.

Two IDF soldiers sustained light stabbing wounds after a Palestinian knife attacker struck. Soldiers on the scene shot and seriously wounded the attacker.

Magen David Adom reported that its medical crews were treating the two lightly wounded men in their 20s at the scene. Both victims and the attacker were evacuated to hospitals for further medical treatment.

The attacker was named as Mustafa Brada'yeh, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an. Brada'yeh comes from Beit Fajjar where he worked as a mathematics teacher. According to initial reports, the assailant arrived at the scene with a knife and a screwdriver, using the later to stab the soldiers.

Palestinian terrorists have killed 25 people in 22 years along a 16-kilometer stretch of Route 60 in the South Hebron Hills.

The latest victim was Rabbi Michael Mark, who was shot to death as he drove with his wife and two of his children from their home in the Otniel settlement to Jerusalem on July 1.

Route 60, stretching from Jerusalem to Beersheba, has seen its share of terrorist attacks, particularly around the Gush Etzion junction, where five people have been killed in the last eight months.
