Police shoot in air, rescue tourists from Arab village

Police rescued two Czech tourists who had mistakenly entered the Arab village of Takua in the Gush Etzion region, according to a Maariv report. 

The two, who mistakenly thought they were on the way to the Dead Sea, were about to turn around when a number of locals began throwing stones at their car. One of the police shot in the air to disperse the rioters and the tourists escaped the village with light damage to their car.
