DAMASCUS, SYRIA (01:25 A.M)- An Israeli soldier was killed and two others critically injured, yesterday, in a West Bank attack.
An unidentified Palestinian operative, killed an Israeli occupation soldier and injured two others yesterday. The operation started at ‘Ariel junction’, opposite an Illegal Israeli Settlement in the West Bank.
The Palestinian man is said to have approached an Israeli occupation soldier, stabbing him with a knife, before taking his assault rifle and killing him. The Palestinian man then proceeded to several different locations, firing upon military jeeps, guard towers, a second soldier and an armed Israeli settler at a bus stop.
It has been claimed that the second soldier, who was reported as injured, as well as the injured settler, also died. These claims are currently unverified.
The operative has not been found, despite a day long effort by the Israeli army.
Hamas have since claimed the attack and have hailed it as a success, adding that it shows the weakness of the occupier and the strength of the resistance.
