A Molotov cocktail hit a Border Police jeep, Sunday evening, on the Hawara route, south of the Samarian (Shomron) Palestinian Authority-assigned city of Shechem.
During pursuit of the terrorists who threw the firebomb, one of the officers spotted a terrorist preparing another firebomb. While firing a warning shot, the officer called on the terrorists to throw the bottle away. When the terrorist continued trying to ignite the bottle, the officer shot at the terrorist, hitting him in the lower part of the body. The terrorist was treated by Israeli soldiers before being taken to hospital.
