On Monday, May, 25, Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers shot and injured two Palestinians near the Amichai settlement in the West Bank, suspected of aiming to carry out a stabbing attack. The suspects reportedly attempted to attack IDF soldiers in the area using knives when the soldiers responded with live fire, causing minor wounds.
A heightened security presence is likely in the area over the coming hours.
Individuals in the West Bank are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the area of the incident, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
