Members of an elite IDF force shot and wounded four Palestinians on Friday evening during a mission in Kalkilya. The troops, hoping to capture a local Hamas leader, had surrounded the man's home. After a number of Palestinians began throwing Molotov cocktails and rocks at the soldiers, the troops opened fire. The four wounded were reportedly hit in their lower body. There were no reports of any IDF casualties.
