Three IDF soldiers attacked in Hebron

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Three unarmed Israeli soldiers who accidentally entered the Arab-controlled area of Hebron were attacked and wounded.

The soldiers, stationed near Hebron, lost their way Thursday during a physical training exercise.

When they realized they were lost, the soldiers asked a local Palestinian for directions to the Jewish town of Kiryat Arba. They were directed into the heart of Arab Hebron, where they were attacked, Haaretz reported.

All of the soldiers required medical attention; one remained hospitalized Thursday night.
