    About three weeks ago, 28-year-old Palestinian terrorist Bilal Rujava fired at IDF fighters at the Samaria Brigade Square, near Nablus.
    In response, the troops opened fire and shot the man dead. There were no casualties among the soldiers.
    The attacker is believed to have the intersection close to the entrance to Nablus by car, and then opened fire on the troops at the position.
    The attacker was a member of the Palestinian security forces.
