After shooting attack, Israelis cross West Bank barrier to confront Palestinians

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

A group of residents of the northern town of Meirav broke through the West Bank security barrier to confront Palestinians in a nearby village, following a shooting attack in the area earlier today.

This morning, Israeli forces carrying out a patrol on the West Bank security barrier came under fire near Meirav. Damage was caused to a military vehicle, but no soldiers were hurt.

Footage shows a group of Israelis on the outskirts of Jalbun, the Palestinian village from which the shooting was apparently carried out.

A military spokesperson tells The Times of Israel that IDF troops reached the scene and escorted the Israelis out of the village.
