      Terrorists fired on IDF soldiers overnight and attempted to run one officer down. No injuries were reported in the incident.

      The incident began when IDF soldiers began tracking a vehicle that had left the Palestinian Authority Arab town of Naalin and was driving toward the nearby Israeli city of Modiin.

      Their suspicions regarding the intentions of the occupants of the vehicle were soon proved correct when those sitting in the car began firing out the window. Soldiers gave chase.

      At one point an IDF commander managed to stop the car. The driver attempted to run him down, and he responded by opening fire. However, the driver managed to escape.

      Soldiers later found the car that had been hit, but continue to search for the attackers.

      In related news, seven PA resident Arabs were arrested overnight on suspicion of involvement in terrorism.
