An IDF soldier was attacked by Palestinian Authority Arabs who tried to steal his weapon while he was on duty near Beit HaShalom in Hebron on Thursday night.
The young soldier was thrown to the ground and beaten by at least two Arab attackers, who were then stopped by other Israeli soldiers who fired their weapons in the air.
It’s not unusual for Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists to try to steal military weapons, especially in terror hotbeds like Hebron.
Two Arab attackers were arrested and taken into custody; both were transferred to security personnel for questioning. No other injuries were reported.
