Terrorist Killed After Opening Fire on IDF Soldiers in Judea and Samaria

IDF soldiers on Monday, July 10, shot and killed a Palestinian who attacked them with gunfire and possessed a grenade, near the Neveh Tzuf settlement in Judea and Samaria, the IDF spokesperson's office has confirmed.

No IDF soldiers were injured, according to local Israeli municipal reports and the IDF.

Initially, the man was parked by the roadside and was acting in a way that raised the IDF patrol's suspicions. When they approached him to ask him to identify himself, he opened fire and started to get ready to throw the grenade at them, but he was shot before he was able to let it loose.

After the exchange of fire, a Carlo submachine gun was found in the Palestinian's car.

Despite the massive IDF operation in Jenin last week, there have been a number of terror incidents against Israel last week and this week. (JPost / VFI News)
