UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Three Israeli soldiers were killed Sunday, Israeli sources said, in a stabbing and shooting near the settlement of Ariel in the West Bank.
Our correspondent in Jerusalem reported that a Palestinian youth arrived at the settlement of Ariel. He stabbed a soldier and then took control of his weapon and shot at a group of soldiers, including four of them, including serious injuries, and fled.
Palestinian media indicated that Israeli forces rushed to the scene of the attack, and closed all entrances and imposed a security cordon on the area.
The Israeli army said in a statement that it had decided “to call and reinforce the military forces in the region in order to pursue the cowardly saboteur and to strengthen defense efforts in the area of attack.”
