Earlier this evening (Wednesday), at an Israeli Border Police security checkpoint in the community of Otniel, in the southern Hebron hills, a suspicious vehicle approached the barrier and ignored the IDF soldiers’ calls for it to stop. The vehicle kept moving toward them.

Arrest procedures were initiated and the IDF soldiers shot at the wheels of the vehicle, at which point the vehicle finally came to a halt.

Circumstances surrounding the incident are under review. No injuries were reported.

The suspect, a resident of Rihia in his 30s, was arrested and transferred for further interrogation.
