Frontpage Mag reports at around 10:00 a.m., an IDF officer in the vicinity noticed a convoy of vehicles that was “driving recklessly at excessive speeds and posing a danger to the public.”
According to Channel 10, says Frontpage Mag, the officer added that the convoy was guilty of numerous traffic violations, including crossing a solid yellow line dividing the road. The drivers finally pulled over after the officer tracked them down and signaled to them to stop.
One female police officer on the scene was physically attacked by a member of Hamdallah’s entourage, adds Frontpage Mag.
“At this point we learned that it was the convoy of the Palestinian prime minister, Rami Hamdallah,” a police source told Channel 10.
Once the officers realized who they had detained, they told him he could continue, but Hamdallah, notes Frontpage Mag, who reportedly called one of the officers a “dog” who was on “occupied land,” refused to do so until he received an apology, according to sources cited by the Ynet news outlet.
