IDF troops shot a Palestinian Authority terrorist as he was throwing stones at Kever Rochel. Palestinian Authority terrorists regularly throw firebombs and stones at the holy site and at the Jews who visit, as well as the occasional explosive device.
Kever Rochel is located in Bais Lechem, at the edge of Yerushalayim, and was left in Israeli control as part of the Oslo Accords agreement due to the historical and religious importance it holds exclusively to the Jewish people.
Due to regular terrorist attacks by Palestinian Authority Arabs on Jewish worshipers at the site, the IDF was forced build high walls around the building and road leading to the building, turning the once pastoral area into a virtual fortress. The terrorist is listed in moderate condition.
