In a battle with Palestinian gunmen in northern Samaria early on Wednesday, a female Israeli soldier from the “Jordan Lions” brigade was gravely hurt, according to an IDF report.
According to the Israel Defense Forces, the servicewoman was wounded by shrapnel during a search for suspects in the northern Jordan Valley city of Tubas, which is thought to be the location of the ancient Tevetz described in Shoftim.
The IDF claimed that armed persons and IDF forces engaged in a firefight during the action in Tubas.
For additional care, she was brought to an Israeli hospital.
For a few hours, the military first prevented the incident’s dissemination.
Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinian terrorists in a separate armed conflict in the West Bank community of Qabatiya.
The IDF reported that during an arrest operation in the city, the two terrorists, who were going to execute a terror strike, opened fire at forces from a passing vehicle.
“The troops responded by firing at the two terrorists, killing them,” the IDF claimed, adding that troops retrieved an assault rifle and handgun from the car.
In an unusual incident during the Qabatiya raid, seven terrorists were arrested after surrendering to IDF forces.
The seven armed terrorists belonged to the Islamic Jihad and appeared en route to attack the ongoing conflict in Gaza. The Shin Bet interrogated seven to determine whether they were responsible for other recent attacks.
Nineteen wanted Palestinians were apprehended during the overnight operations in Judea and Samaria, the IDF reported on Wednesday morning. They were given to the Shin Bet security organization to be questioned further.
After Israel launched an offensive against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group in the Gaza Strip the previous day, tensions were still high during the raids on early Wednesday morning.
