A Palestinian armed with an ax attempted to attack IDF soldiers on Sunday morning at the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

Border policemen and security personnel opened fire at the attacker, wounding him lightly in the leg.

The wounded man was treated by a Border Police paramedic before being transported to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem for further care.
