The Israeli military says it thwarted an attack by two Palestinians throwing Molotov cocktails at passing Israeli cars southeast of Bethlehem in the West Bank.
“Israeli soldiers in the area began implementing the arrest procedure, which included fire towards the suspects. They were struck,” the IDF says.
Both Palestinians — both teenagers — were wounded, one critically, according to the official Palestinian Authority WAFA news agency. Palestinian media did not mention whether the suspects threw Molotov cocktails, describing the events as “clashes.”
