This evening (Monday), two female soldiers accidentally drove their car into the Arab city of Tulkarem in Area A of Judea and Samaria which is under total Palestinian Authority control.

The car that they were driving was attacked with stones. The two soldiers managed to escape the area unharmed, thanks to the help of local Palestinian Arab police.

Regional policemen will soon bring them back to the Civilian Administration.

Initial investigation shows that the soldiers were directed into the city of Tulkarem by their navigation app.They intended to go to the Beit Lid army base near the Israeli city of Netanya, but were directed to the Arab town of Beit Lid near Tulkarem by the app.
