A Palestinian woman carrying a suspicious object was moderately wounded by IDF fire on Friday morning near the Bekaot checkpoint north of Jericho.
The military said the soldiers shot at the woman's legs when she did not heed to calls that she stop walking towards them.
After she was shot, the soldiers discovered she was carrying a toy gun.
The wounded woman was evacuated to hospital in Israel.
