The IDF launched a dramatic rescue operation to extract two Oketz K-9 unit soldiers who accidentally strayed into the Palestinian Kalandia neighborhood north of Jerusalem on Monday night, and found themselves in the midst of a massive riot.

An army source said the incident began at around 10:50 PM, when the vehicle carrying both soldiers entered Kalandia.

“We don’t yet fully understand how it got there. The soldiers became surrounded in a very big riot, with many rocks thrown at their vehicle. They continued driving, and then Molotov cocktails were thrown at them, setting the vehicle on fire,” the source said.
