Jerusalem, 17 June, 2021 (TPS) -- An Arab terrorist was shot and seriously injured by IDF soldiers on Wednesday evening while apparently marching on the community of Evyatar in Samaria together with dozens of other Arabs.

The IDF stated that a troop securing the community identified dozens of Arabs approaching a force on a security mission in the area of the Givat Evyatar.

One of the Arabs ran towards the soldier and threw a suspect object at him, which exploded near him. In response, the solder initiated an arrest procedure that included firing into the air and firing at the suspect.

The terrorist was shot and injured.

Head of the emergency department at the Red Crescent in Shechem (Nablus) told the WAFA news agency that he was taken to a hospital with serious  gunshot wounds to the head.

There were no Israeli casualties.
