One person shot, moderately hurt in southern West Bank settlement — medics

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

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says medics are treating a man in his 20s who is moderately hurt by gunfire in the southern West Bank settlement of Carmel.

MDA says the man is taken to Beersheba’s Soroka hospital.

The incident comes as a suspected infiltration siren rings out in the area.

According to initial Hebrew-language media reports, an alleged assailant has been subdued or shot.

The Israel Defense Forces says the incident is under review, but described it as a “suspected security incident.”
