During an IDF arrest operation for a wanted terror suspect last night (Thursday) in Kabatiya (near Jenin), IDF soldiers came under attack by rioting residents when trying to exit the village.
Soldiers were attacked by rocks and stones which were lobbed at them and at the vehicles in which they arrived. One of the vehicles was disabled during the course of the attack. The soldiers, perceiving themselves to be in a life-threatening situation, fired their weapons into the air in order to disperse the attackers. None of the soldiers was injured, but the villagers reported that a young Arab man was shot and killed as a result.
The IDF is investigating the report.
