IDF says troops shot Palestinian who hurled explosive at army post outside Jerusalem

Israeli troops “neutralized” a Palestinian suspect who hurled an explosive at a military post on the outskirts of Jerusalem, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

A statement from the army says soldiers in the 636th Combat Intelligence Collection unit who were on a mission near the Palestinian town of Abu Dis spotted the suspect throwing the explosive and shot him.

The IDF doesn’t give details on the suspect’s condition, but the Palestinian Authority’s official Wafa news agency reports a man in the area was shot dead by Israeli forces.

No troops were wounded in the incident.
