An IDF force consisted of Combat Engineering soldiers and a patrole company identified two terrorists placing an explosive charge last night on the Talitha – Komi road that connects the “Minharot” road with mount Gilo.
The terrorists opened fire at the soldiers who returned fire, stormed the terrorists and killed one of them. The other terrorist escaped to an area under Palestinian control.
IDF forces searched the area and found the terrorists’ equipment as well as an explosive device placed near the road.
IDF soldiers disarmed the device, thereby preventing harm to civilians and soldiers travelling on the road.
