Two terrorists were killed in the Shomron on Monday morning after attempting to ram IDF soldiers carrying out a raid.

A third terrorist was wounded in the incident, which took place near a refugee camp outside Ramallah.

An IDF spokesperson said neither of the terrorists involved in the attempted car ramming were connected to the suspect the IDF sought to arrest.

The early morning raid was part of the IDF’s Operation Breakwater, an extensive anti-terrorism campaign in Yehudah and Shomron.

On Sunday, a soldier was shot in the leg near Itamar. He was transported to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva. He was reportedly in light condition and fully conscious.

Immediately before the shooting, a demonstration took place by settlers who were protesting the security situation in light of recent attacks.

Dramatic video from the scene of the shooting showed settler activists ducking behind cars with their guns drawn. Shomron Regional Council head Yossi Dagan can be seen with his pistol drawn, protecting young children.
