An IDF officer was wounded tonight when an explosive device went off at the entrance to the Palestinian town of Hizma, near Yerushalayim’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood, Ynet reports.
A Home Front command force patrolling on Highway 60 identified a suspicious object. When the troops left their vehicles to examine what turned out to be an explosive device, it went off near the force’s commander who was taken to Hadassah Medical Center.
IDF and Shin Bet troops cleared the scene and closed off route 437 after finding two additional suspicious objects that they fear may be explosives.
