Terrorists opened fire on Wednesday night towards a police car at the Rechelim junction, near the city of Ariel in Samaria.

There were no injuries but the vehicle sustained damage from the bullets. Police and IDF forces are searching the area in an attempt to locate the terrorists.

The attempted shooting attack comes hours after two terrorists approached a military post near the community of Har Bracha in Samaria, stabbing two IDF soldiers and fleeing the scene.

One soldier is moderately wounded, while the other suffered light injuries. A military helicopter was sent to bring them both to a hospital.

Early on Wednesday morning, two terrorists broke into the home of Roi Harel in the Binyamin region community of Eli.

The terrorists attacked Harel with knives and clubs, lightly wounding him. Harel heroically fought off the terrorists in order to prevent them from attacking his wife and five children.

The two 17-year-old attackers fled the scene but were later tracked down and killed by security forces.
