IDF SPOKESPERSONS ANNOUNCEMENT

Two Off Duty Soldiers Killed in a Palestinian Shooting Attack in Southern
Hebron

Two IDF soldiers, private Ahikam Amihai and Sergeant David Rubin, residents
of Qiryat Arba, were killed this afternoon. The two, who were off duty, were
killed by Palestinian fire while they were hiking near wadi Telem, northwest
of Hebron.

An initial investigation of the incident shows that the two soldiers were
hiking in the area along with an Israeli woman when a group of Palestinian
gunmen opened fire at them. An exchange of fire ensued between the
Palestinian gunmen and the soldiers, who were carrying their personal
rifles. One gunman was killed and another was severely injured in the
exchanges of fire.

The Israeli woman, who managed to keep her composure, escaped the shooting
and called the security forces in the region.

The security forces are searching after the Palestinian gunmen who got away.
Senior IDF commanders of the Judea and Samaria region are thoroughly
investigating the incident.
