Members of an IDF unit stationed near Hevron shot an Arab terrorist as he prepared to throw a firebomb at them on Thursday evening.

Arab reports claimed that the terrorist was seriously wounded and taken to hospital in the city.

Earlier on Thursday, terrorists threw a firebomb at an IDF position in the city. There were no injuries or damages.

Also on Thursday, three firebombs were thrown at an Israeli car travelling near Al-Khader, west of Bethlehem. There were no injuries or damages.

Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted Thursday in Hevron, where they hurled rocks and bottles at Israeli soldiers. IDF troops responded with mob control methods that included the use of tear gas.

There were no reports of serious injuries, according to local sources, who said that nearly a hundred protesters had attempted to storm the IDF troops.

The Arab rioting occurred several hours after a female officer shot and killed a 17-year-old PA Arab terrorist who pulled a gun on Border Police officers near Hevron.

A police sapper who arrived subsequently to check out the gun determined that it was a fake gun.
