An Israeli Girl was seriously wounded tonight and two additional citizens were lightly wounded by moltov cocktails thrown at the vehichle in which they travelled in the city of Jericho. The three indepentently arrived at the Israeli DCO in Jericho where they were treated and then evacuated for further treatment in hospital. The IDF views this attack on Israeli citizens within Area A very seriously, as this area is under the security responsibility of the Palestinian Authority. The IDF strongly demands from the Palestinian Authority to immediately deal with all of the violent rioting aimed at our forces and citizens in Area A and outside of it. The IDF views the Palestinian Authority responsible for the escalation of the situation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and for the results of this escalation. In response to this, Jericho is closed to the entrance of Israelis.
