Israeli police on Wednesday arrested a resident of Karnei Shomron in Samaria, on suspicion of throwing an ax at a Palestinian car.

Earlier this morning, police received a call from a Palestinian man who claimed that while driving between the Arab village of Azoun and Karnei Shomron an ax was hurled through his front windscreen.

An investigation was immediately launched by the Nationalistic Crimes Division, and shortly afterwards a resident of Karnei Shomron was arrested for involvement in what police suspect was an intentional attack.

The suspect, who was arrested at his home in the Jewish town, reportedly confessed under police interrogation.

The investigation is still ongoing.
