Israeli forces conducting operations near Kafr Malik in Judea and Samaria opened fire on a group of Palestinians who had been preparing to hurl firebombs at them, the Israel Defense Forces said on Wednesday.

“The soldiers identified a number of terrorists who attempted to throw Molotov cocktails and fired at them. A hit was identified,” the IDF said in a statement.

The Palestine News Agency (WAFA) reported on Wednesday that “two youths” were moderately wounded in the incident. They were arrested and taken to an Israeli hospital for treatment.
