Two IDF soldiers were attacked and wounded by a Palestinian mob after mistakenly entering the Palestinian city of Jenin.
Two IDF soldiers were violently attacked by a Palestinian mob on Monday after mistakenly entering the Palestinian city of Jenin.
The soldiers, a male and a female, were driving a vehicle when they were suddenly surrounded by a mob that threw rocks at the car. Both soldiers were wounded, and one of their service weapons was stolen.
They were finally secured by Palestinian police who led them out of the city.
The female soldier was taken for treatment at an Israeli hospital with light to moderate wounds.
The IDF announced that it will investigate the incident.
Similar occurrences have ended more violently, the most notorious in 2000 when Yosef Avrahami and Vadim Norzhich, two IDF reservists, were lynched by a Palestinian mob at a Ramallah police station.
