JNS.org – A Palestinian man opened fire on Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley on Friday. The soldiers returned fire at the attacker, seriously wounding him. He later died of his wounds. No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the incident.

The shooting took place at the Beka’ot checkpoint in the northern Jordan Valley. The attacker got out of a vehicle and opened fire at the Israel Defense Forces reservist soldiers manning the checkpoint. The soldiers reacted quickly, taking out the attacker with their return fire.

After the shooting, the area was declared a closed military zone, due to concerns that the attacker had brought explosives with him.

The incident was the latest in a spate of attacks carried out inside of Israel by Palestinian terrorists. Last Sunday, an Israeli border policeman was critically wounded in a stabbing attack outside of Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. On June 19, an Israeli man was killed and another was wounded when a Palestinian attacker shot them in their vehicle near a spring in Samaria.
