IDF forces on Monday shot and wounded an Arab who is suspected of having attempted to hit them with his car.

IDF troops manning the Einav Crossing at the entrance to the Palestinian Authority (PA) city of Tul Karem shot the suspect, a man with Israeli citizenship, after he apparently attempted to ram them with his car.


He was evacuated with wounds to his chest, first by the Red Crescent, but was later transferred to an Israeli hospital.

The IDF stated that the incident was under investigation.

In related news, Israeli forces carried out counter-terrorism operations throughout Judea and Samaria during which they arrested eight terrorist operatives suspected of involvement in terrorist activities and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces. The suspects were taken for questioning.
