On Saturday evening, two Israeli soldiers, including one who suffered serious wounds, were shot in a shooting attack in Huwwara town, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli sources have confined that two combat soldiers were shot and added that one suffered serious wounds and the other suffered moderate injuries.

They added that the two soldiers, in their twenties, were rushed to an Israeli medical center.

The Palestinian fighters fired at the soldiers from a moving car and sped away, leading to a manhunt.

The army is still searching Huwwara and surrounding areas, closing many intersections, isolating Palestinian communities, and invading Beita town.

The fighters opened fire at several military vehicles that invaded Huwwara, wounding the two soldiers.

The army closed Huwwara and many surrounding Palestinian communities and installed several additional roadblocks.

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), claimed responsibility for the shooting.

In a statement, the Brigades said, “Our fighter managed to target a Zionist army force near Huwwara roadblock and fled the scene.”

The Brigades also called on the Palestinian people and all factions to unite and form a strong resistance front.
