Israeli forces detain Palestinian driver who fled Hebron-area checkpoint

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian driver in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron district on Wednesday, Israeli border police said.

A spokesperson for the border police told Ma’an that the driver hit a parked vehicle at a checkpoint near the illegal settlement of Otniel when Israeli forces asked him to reverse for an identity check.

The Palestinian driver then reportedly drove forward in the direction of Israeli troops, without causing any injuries, and fled to a nearby gas station.

Israeli forces followed the vehicle to the gas station where they shot at the car’s tires and apprehended the driver, identified as a resident of the nearby village of al-Rihiya, the spokesperson added, saying that an investigation was ongoing to determine whether the Palestinian had attempted to carry out a vehicular attack or to evade the police inspection.
