Efrat, Israel. Photo: Wikimedia Commons. – An Israel Defense Forces soldier sustained minor injuries Tuesday when Israeli troops on routine patrol in Judea and Samaria came under fire.

The incident took place on the outskirts of the community of Efrat in the Gush Etzion region. The soldier was treated onsite. Security forces canvassed the area for the terrorist, who remained at large as of Tuesday.

Overnight, Israeli military forces and Shin Bet security agents operating in several locations across Judea and Samaria arrested four Palestinians wanted for questioning by the defense establishment.

    “Lightly wounded” what kind of editorial comment is that? Do you mean he scraped his knee when he fell to the ground? Stop with the labels and give us the facts. That’s like “lone wolf” terrorist.
    What the heck is the difference. Ask yourself who benefits by these labels. An LW will kill someone just as dead as 2 or 3 wolve terrorists. Cut the smoke and give us clear facts.
