Idf, Jordan Link Up in Gunman Search

Israeli and Jordanian security forces Tuesday coordinated the hunt for a gunman who opened fire on an Israel Defense Force patrol in the Beit She’an Valley, lightly wounding an Israeli soldier.

A four-hour search for the gunman took place.

He was shot dead after he pointed a gun at Israeli soldiers, who found him hiding in an overgrown area near the site of the first shooting.
