“The troops spotted a number of suspects preparing to hurl [firebombs] at an IDF post … adjacent to Amos junction” between the towns of Efrat and Tekoa, according to the IDF.

“The troops fired toward one of the suspects,” continued the report. “The suspect was injured and received treatment at the spot, and was evacuated to a hospital to receive further medical treatment.”
