JNS.orgIsraeli soldiers shot and wounded an Arab man who tried to breach the perimeter of an Iron Dome anti-rocket battery in Eilat on Thursday, Israel Hayom reported.

The man, a resident of Haifa, approached the Iron Dome battery unarmed and was ordered by soldiers to stop. According to the preliminary investigation, the man did not obey the soldiers’ commands. Ultimately, they fired in his direction, and one round hit the man in the lower back.

“The soldiers performed the suspect arrest procedure. Only after the man did not listen to the [soldiers’] commands, they fired at him,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.
