An improvised explosive device was thrown at IDF soldiers early Thursday morning near the West Bank city of Jenin.

No injuries or arrests were reported, according to Walla news.

In separate incidents, three Molotov cocktails were thrown at cars near the West Bank settlement of Psagot, next to Ramallah overnight. No injuries were reported.

The attacks were the latest in a series of assaults on Israeli military personnel and civilians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Late Wednesday night, a Border Police officer was lightly hurt in Jerusalem from smoke inhalation after a Molotov cocktail hurled by Palestinians at a police car started a fire in the vehicle.

Hours before, a Palestinian man stabbed and injured a Border Police officer outside Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate.

Last week an Israeli soldier was moderately injured by an improvised explosive device thrown at the entrance of the Panorama army post near the West Bank settlement of Har Gilo south of Jerusalem.

The soldier was injured in his eye, face and shoulder.

IDF forces swept the area for the perpetrators of the attack, but did not report catching anyone.
