IDF soldiers attacked while taking medication for detainee

An initial investigation into Saturday night’s incident in the Palestinian Arab village of Nahalin, near Bethlehem, in which an IDF soldier was lightly injured, has found that the incident occurred when IDF soldiers entered a home in the village in order to pick up medication for a suspect they had arrested.

As they entered the home, Palestinian Arabs attacked the soldiers and tried to steal the personal weapon of one of them. A female soldier fired one bullet and a violent disturbance broke out.
