Israeli soldier injured in alleged attempted shooting attack near Tulkarem

TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was injured in a shooting incident near the northern occupied West Bank city of Tulkarem on Thursday night.

Israeli media reported that a soldier was lightly wounded by armed Palestinian gunmen, near the Gate 104 road gate in western Tulkarem city.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed to Ma’an that at least one Palestinian gunman opened fire at Israeli army forces, lightly injuring one soldier, who was immediately taken to receive medical treatment.

The spokesperson added on Friday that several bullet casings were found at the scene, and that Israeli forces were continuing their search for suspects.

Palestinian security sources added that the Israeli army had informed them of “security activity” in the city of Tulkarem and the surrounding refugee camps following the incident.

Since October 2015, a wave of unrest has spread across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel, and has been characterized by mostly small-scale attacks and alleged attacks primarily against Israeli forces.

The unrest has left 238 Palestinians killed by Israelis, most of whom were shot dead by Israeli forces, and 34 Israelis that were killed by Palestinians.
