Terrorists launched an attack on an IDF unit in northern Samaria early on Friday morning, IDF sources have revealed.
Attackers opened fire on IDF troops near the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Jenin. At the same time, other Arab attackers hurled rocks at the soldiers.
Soldiers were in the area to arrest a PA Arab man suspected of terror-related crimes.
Soldiers returned fire, hitting one attacker and wounding him. The wounded man was taken to a local PA hospital for treatment.
The troops managed to arrest the suspect they had come for despite the attack. He was taken to security services for questioning.
A statement from the IDF declared that soldiers will continue “to fight terrorism and to work to maintain stability and security in the region.”
