Israeli forces on Wednesday shot and arrested a Palestinian terrorist who assaulted troops near the town of al-Khader, west of Bethlehem in Judea.
The suspect got out of a vehicle while waiting to be questioned at an IDF checkpoint and then tried to attack the soldiers. He was shot in the leg and then detained.
Kan News reported that a number of Palestinians were involved in the assault on the soldiers stationed at the checkpoint.
No soldiers were hurt during the incident, which comes hours after a ceasefire took effect between Israel and Palestinian terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip that followed more than 100 rockets being fired towards the Jewish state in less than 24 hours.
A female driver whose vehicle was also attacked was treated at the scene for shock.
According to a preliminary report, a terrorist exited a car with Palestinian Authority license plates and began firing at oncoming traffic before returning to his vehicle and driving away.
The Israel Defense Forces launched a manhunt for the perpetrators.
