In what was the third terrorist attack in less than 24 hours, an Israeli soldier was lightly wounded in the Binyamin region following a drive-by shooting.
The soldier was manning a guard post in a junction in the area, not far from Jerusalem, when he was hit. According to first responders, the Israel Defense Forces member was treated at the scene and was fully conscious.
The attack comes just hours after a similar incident in the Old City of Jerusalem. A Border Police officer sustained mild injuries on Thursday in that attack, which took place not far from the Temple Mount. Other troops stationed at the scene engaged the terrorist, who was shot dead.
The incident followed another terrorist attack in the capital, in which 12 soldiers were wounded, one seriously, in a ramming attack that took place shortly before 2 am on Jerusalem’s David Remez Street.
It’s been a little over a week since The White House announced its “peace deal” and in that time frame continued violence has been carried out against Israel. Israel must take every measure to protect and secure its citizens, its borders and its country.
