Two IDF soldiers were shot and lightly wounded by Palestinian terrorists along Route 443, near Jerusalem.

Palestinian terrorists fired on two IDF soldiers Friday night near an army checkpoint on Route 443, west of Jerusalem.

The victims, both in their 20s and lightly wounded, were taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.

Route 443 has been one of the most targeted sites by Palestinian terrorists over the years, especially since the beginning of the current wave of violence that began at the start of the Jewish New Year in mid-September..
