Palestinian driver hits Israeli soldiers in West Bank

A Palestinian taxi injured four Israeli soldiers in a hit-and-run incident in the West Bank on Tuesday, but it was not immediately clear if it was a deliberate attack, police told AFP.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said those injured were part of a group of six soldiers standing at the side of the road alongside their vehicle, near the settlement of Neveh Daniel, southwest of Bethlehem.

“A Palestinian taxi struck four soldiers. One was injured moderately, three lightly,” he said.

“We are now looking for a Palestinian taxi that fled the area and it’s not clear whether the background was accidental or the incident was deliberate.”
