2 Israeli soldiers injured in shooting attack in West Bank – Middle East Monitor
Two Israeli soldiers were wounded in a shooting attack near the Palestinian town of Huwara in the occupied West Bank on Saturday, according to Israeli media. Anadolu reports.
The two soldiers came under fire from a passing vehicle, The Jerusalem Post reported.
The attack was the third in Huwara in recent weeks.
The Palestinian town attracted international attention last month when Israeli settlers attacked the town, killing a Palestinian and vandalizing several houses and vehicles. The violence followed the death of two Israeli settlers in a shooting attack near the town.
Tensions have been high across the West Bank in recent months amid repeated Israeli raids on Palestinian towns.
Nearly 90 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the beginning of this year, according to Palestinian figures. Fourteen Israelis were killed in separate attacks during the same period.
