(A lone soldier is an individual who has made aliyah to Israel alone while their parents and family remain in their birth country, in this case the UK.)

Cpl. Lian Harush was at the junction along with her commander when a Palestinian, Attallah Mohammad Rayyan, 17, approached and tried to stab her.

“After I knocked him back with my weapon, he went back and forth between me and my commander, trying to stab us,” Harush said.
