( A Palestinian terrorist opened fire at Israeli soldiers at the Tapuach Junction near Nablus late Monday night, just three days after soldiers apprehended another Palestinian terrorist wearing a suicide belt at the same location, Israel Hayom reported.

In Monday’s incident, which took place close to midnight, an Israeli border policeman was lightly wounded by the terrorist’s gunfire. Soldiers quickly returned fire and killed the terrorist.

Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, accompanied by Samaria Brigade Commander Col. Yoav Yarom, arrived at the scene shortly after the attack.
