Soldier attacked with acid loses an eye


An IDF soldier lost one of his eyes following a Monday morning attack by a Palestinian woman at the Hawara checkpoint outside Nablus. The IDF said the woman threw an acidic substance in the face of the soldier, who was guarding the checkpoint.

The soldier was hospitalized with light-to-moderate wounds.

The woman who attacked the soldier was responsible for a similar attack on September 10, the army said.

She escaped at that attack, but was arrested Monday.

Dr. Anan Abd el-Haq of Rafidiya Hospital in Nablus said soldiers wounded three bystanders with gunfire and shrapnel immediately after the incident.

The military said, however, that soldiers fired only one shot in the air to keep the crowd at bay.
