An Israel Defense Forces soldier was shot and moderately wounded on Friday in the Jewish community of Adora in Judea.

According to the military, a reservist guarding the community had responded to an alert in the community’s industrial zone.

“When the soldier arrived, he was hit by the terrorists’ gunfire,” the IDF said.

The victim, aged 34, sustained a bullet wound to the leg and was evacuated to the hospital fully conscious and in stable condition.

After a short manhunt, security forces tracked down and killed the three Palestinians, all of them teenagers with no prior security offenses.

Security forces found a M-16 rifle, several knives and fire bombs on the bodies of the terrorists.

“We have been warning about this scenario for several months already. Entire communities are located close to nests of terror, without sufficient security barriers,” said Yesha Council chairman and head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council Shlomo Ne’eman.

“There are unfenced communities without security elements, and we can’t always rely on miracles…. Therefore, the most important issue at the moment is to include the budget for security and reinforcement in Judea and Samaria in this year’s core budget,” he added.
