 IDF soldier wounded while trying to steal weapons

During the operation of the IDF tonight in Judea and Samaria as part of Operation Breakwater, a Palestinian tried to steal a weapon from a fighter. One fighter was slightly injured and taken to the hospital.

The incident took place during an operation to detain wanted persons in the village of Kabatia in Menashe. Soldiers of the Patrol "Haruv" arrested three wanted men suspected of involvement in terrorist activities. At the end of the operation, as they began to leave Kabatiyah, the soldiers in the armored vehicles noticed a suspicious car with unmarked black windows and decided to check on the occupants of the suspicious car.

When they arrived at the car, one of the Palestinians jumped on one of the soldiers and tried to grab his weapon. The fighter defending his comrade immediately opened fire in the direction of the Palestinian and hit him. As a result of the shooting, the fighter "Haruv" received a minor injury and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

After an initial investigation following an attempted theft of a weapon from a member of the Haruv Patrol, the Command of the Central District highly appreciated the actions of the fighters in this incident, the quick response and neutralization of the suspect, who prevented an attempted theft of a weapon, which could lead to serious consequences.
