An Arab terrorist was shot in the wee hours of Friday morning after he attacked IDF soldiers during operations in the Palestinian Authority village of Beit Ummar, in Judea.

During the night the IDF Etzion Brigade was faced with a rioting mob of Arabs while operating in the village. The attackers hurled rocks, bottles and shot live fireworks at Israeli forces, who responded with standard riot control measures, including the use of rubber bullets when other measures failed.


One of the soldiers identified a hit; an attacking terrorist was shot in his lower body.

Also overnight, IDF soldiers operated together with Shin Bet intelligence agents, Israel Police and Border Guard Police in Judea and Samaria to track down Arab suspects accused of involvement in terrorist activities.

Six wanted men were arrested.
