Two Israel Defense Forces soldiers were wounded overnight Sunday in an operation in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Nablus in Samaria.

Israeli forces detained a suspected terrorist during the operation, during which Palestinians threw stones and explosive devices at the troops, the military said.

As the soldiers were leaving the city, Palestinians opened fire on two military vehicles; an officer and an enlisted man were lightly wounded by shrapnel and were evacuated to the hospital.

Israeli forces detained three additional Palestinian terror suspects in other raids across Judea and Samaria.

The four suspects detained were transferred to the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) for questioning.

On Sunday, Palestinian Authority security forces reportedly located a car in Nablus used by terrorists to kill Maia and Rina Dee two days earlier in the Jordan Valley.

Israeli security forces were continuing to search for the perpetrators on Monday.

Meanwhile, the IDF is deploying soldiers to Tel Aviv to reinforce the police presence there amid a surge in terrorism.

It comes after an Italian tourist was killed and seven other foreigners were wounded on Friday night in a car-ramming attack in central Tel Aviv, and following rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Syria.
