IDF troops came under attack at the Arab town of Jenin overnight Tuesday, with Muslim terrorists shooting and throwing dozens of explosives at them.
The troops from the Special Forces unit Maglan returned fire, eliminating two of the terrorists and wounding a third.
One of them, Saad Salah, 20, was eliminated instantly, while a second, Awss Salameh, 17, was seriously wounded and later succumbed at the hospital.
A third has been hit in the leg.
The IDF said none of the soldiers were hurt.
Israeli security forces—including IDF, Shin Bet, Border Police, and police forces—arrested 21 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terror and violent disorders directed against Israelis
The overnight attack in Jenin comes at the heels of a terror attack on Monday in Gush Etzion, when a Muslim terrorist rammed his car into a pillbox post near the Jewish community of Tekoa, where Artillery Corps soldiers were stationed, lightly wounding one of them. The terrorist then left his car brandishing a knife and tried to stab the soldiers. He was shot and eliminated.
