Two injured in West Bank firebomb attack


Two people sustained minor injuries when a firebomb hit their car near the West Bank settlement of Efrat.

The car was completely burnt in the attack Thursday night, Army Radio reported. The two victims had burns and were taken by ambulance to a hospital in Jerusalem.

The attack was the third serious incident in the West Bank over the past 24 hours.

On Thursday night, in two separate incidents, Israeli troops shot and killed two Palestinians whom they suspected of carrying out an attack.

The first incident occurred at the Abu Dis checkpoint near Jerusalem. Troops shot a Palestinian man in the abdomen after he tried to stab a Border Police officer, the report said. Medics evacuated the Palestinian man to hospital but he died of his injuries. None of the Israelis was hurt.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, troops killed a Palestinian after he fired a flare gun at Israelis standing at a bus stop near the settlement Tapuach, according to eyewitness accounts.

“There were four people inside the bus stop,” Asher Hoffman told Army Radio. “We heard explosions and saw a terrorist running in our direction. The Border Police intercepted him, fired at his direction and hit.”
