“A main instigator attempted to hurl an explosive device at the force who opened fire in response,” the military said, without elaborating on the nature of the device. It said forces arrested the wanted operative, who was found with weapons. While violence raged between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza this summer, the West Bank remained largely quiet.
