Palestinian hurls explosive at IDF soldiers, is shot — army
[IsraelTimes] Suspect critically injured near site of new illegal outpost; no Israeli casualties; separately, Paleostinian woman arrested with knife outside Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs.

A Paleostinian man threw an bomb at Israeli soldiers in the West Bank on Wednesday, prompting troops to open fire at the suspect, critically injuring him, the military said.

The army said a group of dozens of Paleostinians was making its way toward troops at the Evyatar illegal outpost when one charged at them and threw a suspicious object which went kaboom!.

An IDF soldier fired first in the air and then toward the suspect, who was hit and critically injured.

There were no Israeli casualties, the army said.

The area around Beita has seen repeated festivities between Israeli forces and Paleostinians in recent weeks following the establishment of a new West Bank outpost known as Evyatar on land close to the town. Paleostinians have hurled stones at troops and ignited swathes of terrain, while Israeli soldiers have responded with riot dispersal means and live bullets.

Two Paleostinians were killed by Israeli fire during different festivities between Beita residents and Israeli forces in recent days.

Also Wednesday, Israeli Border Police arrested a Paleostinian woman in possession of a knife at the entrance to Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs. The woman aroused the suspicion of officers outside the West Bank holy site, and they proceeded to carry out an arrest according to protocol, during which the woman threw her knife at the ground upon command. No one was injured in the incident, Border Police said.

Hours earlier, a female Paleostinian assailant attempted to commit a car-ramming and stabbing attack near the central West Bank Paleostinian town of Hizme before being shot and killed. The military noted that there were no Israeli casualties and that the attacker had been "neutralized." The official PA news agency Wafa identified the woman as Mai Afaneh, 29, from the town of Abu Dis, which is east of Jerusalem. Reports said Afaneh had written on Facebook hours before the attack: "I don’t have much time left in life."
