Report: Palestinians Break Into Army Base, Injure Soldier
Israel's army said Friday that two Paleostinians breached the security fence of an army base north of Jerusalem and lightly injured a soldier after assaulting him.
Israel's Ynet news site reported that assailants sprayed him with pepper spray, overpowered him and stole his weapon. He sustained mild injuries and was treated by army medics, Ynet said.
The report quoted army sources describing a "serious security failure," and said though the motive was believed to be criminal it was being investigated as an "attempted terror attack."
