The IDF says tonight’s exchanges of fire in Qalandiya in the West Bank come as troops enter the refugee camp to rescue two soldiers who had mistakenly driven there.
The two flee and are separated after their car is attacked by a Palestinian mob with stones and Molotov cocktails, and then set on fire.
Multiple army, Shin Bet, and special forces are rushed to the scene to locate the two before they are hurt.
The two are found — one some 20 minutes ago and the other moments ago.
There are no Israeli injuries in the firefights with Palestinian gunmen that break out.
The Palestinians say several youths are hurt in the gunfire.
