Troops detain two Palestinians suspected of shooting at West Bank military post
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
The Israel Defense Forces says Palestinian gunmen fired from a passing vehicle at a military post near the Herodion National Park in the West Bank, not far from Bethlehem.
Troops scanning the area for the attackers spotted a suspicious car, from which suspects were seen hurling a bag, the IDF says.
The military says troops fired into the air to stop the car with two suspects.
A shell casing from a bullet was found in the car, and a handgun and several M16 magazines were found in the bag thrown from the vehicle, the IDF says.
“The pair were arrested and their car was impounded,” the military adds.
