Two Palestinians, who were apparently out to steal metals, attacked Moshav Kfar Hess's security officer on Friday. The officer, who was lightly wounded, was able to shoot and lightly wound one of the attackers. According to a preliminary investigation, the Palestinians came on horseback and initially attempted to run over the officer with the horses. After they had failed, they allegedly attempted to attack him themselves. Security and police forces who were rushed to the scene evacuated the wounded attacker to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba. Police were investigating the incident and searching for the second attacker.
