A Palestinian driver was shot dead after running over three Border Policemen north of the West Bank city of Hebron. The three troops were lightly wounded.

The incident occurred in Beit Omar, north of Hebron. The victims were evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem by the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

On Saturday evening, gunmen opened fire toward Israelis driving near the Karmei Tzur settlement. No casualties or damage were reported and a manhunt is underway for the assailants.

A Palestinian man attempted to run over Israeli soldiers on Friday near the West Bank settlement of Ofra. The soldiers went unharmed and the assailant was shot and injured.

A Palestinian teen was killed in Beit Omar last Thursday after he pelted an army patrol jeep with stones. Military Police have since opened an investigation into the incident.
