A female IDF soldier shot a Palestinian terrorist (age 17) who pulled a gun on another IDF soldier near Ma’arat HaMachpelah (The Tomb of the Patriarchs) in Hebron.
Arabs then began rioting in the area.
The attack occurred at “Circle 160” when a Palestinian walking towards the border police position roused suspicion of the border police on guard.
One of the border policemen asked the man to identify himself, at which point the Palestinian terrorist pulled a gun and pointed it at the border policeman’s head. A female border policewoman also manning the position then shot the terrorist, killing him.
The terrorist is the brother of one of the terrorists released in the Shalit deal.
The gun pulled on the border policeman was not a real gun, though you can see in the attached photo, that it looks completely real.
