An Israeli man was injured Sunday evening after he accidentally entered the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Husan, near Beitar Illit south of Jerusalem.

The incident occurred after the man, who was driving on a motorcycle, took the wrong exit, and found himself in the town of Husan.

After he entered Husan, the motorcyclist was attacked by rock-throwing terrorists, and suffered a head injury.

IDF forces were dispatched to the scene to evacuate the injured man from Husan.

United Hatzalah emergency first responders are waiting outside of Husan to treat the man once he is evacuated from the town, a United Hatzalah spokesperson said. MDA volunteers are also on site to help treat and evacuate the man to a hospital.
