An Israeli Arab terrorist was seriously wounded after he decided to attack an Iron Dome installation, the Israeli military said.
Israeli soldiers had no choice but to open fire on the man, who tried to infiltrate the Iron Dome complex in Eilat on Thursday.
“There was a suspect who tried to infiltrate the Iron Dome complex in Eilat. The soldiers at the scene told investigators that they asked the suspect to stop and fired warning shots in the air,” an Israeli army spokesperson said.
“However, after refusing to back off, he was shot,” the spokesperson added.
The man, who is an Israeli citizen, was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment. The suspect will be brought before a Magistrate’s Court judge for a bail hearing. Charges are still pending.
