The IDF confirms an Israeli soldier was wounded in the shooting attack earlier near the West Bank town of Yabed and the settlement of Mevo Dotan.

“The soldier received initial medical treatment at the scene and was evacuated to a hospital to receive further medical treatment,” the IDF says.

It says troops have launched a manhunt for the assailants, setting up roadblocks in the area.
