The Shin Bet and the IDF's Kfir infantry brigade arrested a 16-year-of Palestinian on Saturday on suspicion of opening fire on and seriously wounding an IDF soldier in Bet Anoun, north of Hebron.

Soldiers from the brigade's Harouv Battalion, acting on Shin Bet intelligence, arrested a resident of Bnei Naim, and brought him in for questioning by the Shin Bet. He confessed to the shooting and disclosed the location of the rifle he used to carry out the attack, the Shin Bet said.
