Hit and Run at Bitunia-Area Checkpoint


An Arab driver hit two Israeli soldiers at an Israel Defense Forces roadblock in the area of the Samarian Arab village of Bitunia, Thursday. The soldiers suffered light injuries and were evacuated to Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

The driver did not stop and got away. A preliminary investigation indicates the incident was not an attack but a case of an attack but a driver who bypassed a long line at the roadblock and broke through the roadblock.
