clashes with Palestinian gunmen in the West Bank town of Kabatiya, south of Jenin. The soldier was evacuated by helicopter to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa and was treated for a gunshot wound to the forehead.

The soldier was wounded during a routine arrest raid in the West Bank town. An armed Palestinian opened fire at the military force and hit the soldier. Another soldier was lightly wounded during the gun clashes. (link)

Another clash in the West Bank while a 'cease-fire' holds in Gaza. It will take both the Israelis and the Palestinians to make peace if they ever do. You would think the first step should be for the Palestinians to stop ambushing the IDF. Sadly, that doesn't look like a scenario that will ever come to pass.

At least the two soldiers that were hit seem to be ok. Wounded, but not in any serious danger at this time.
Reason for statehood?
