IDF forces wounded a Palestinian youth on Wednesday night, thus preventing an attempted attack against Israelis on a West Bank road bypassing Nablus.
The soldiers spotted three Palestinian youths on a road near the village of Madme south of Nablus, bearing what seemed to be Molotov cocktails. According to Army Radio, the three tried to escape towards the village, but the Israeli forces opened fire, wounding one of the youths in the leg.
In another incident, rocks and Molotov cocktails were thrown at a bus driving near Huwara near Nablus. There were no injuries reported.
