Three Israeli soldiers were wounded — one of them seriously — on Monday when a Palestinian terrorist opened fire at a checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

The terrorist — who was armed with a Kalashnikov rifle — was shot dead on the scene. According to media reports, he was a member of the Palestinian Authority security forces.

The attack took place at the Focus checkpoint near the Jewish community of Beit El, next to Ramallah. A similar attack at the same location took place in January.

    Criminals with murderous intent should be shot on sight.
