An Israeli policeman was mildly injured in an apparent car-ramming attack Wednesday next to the West Bank settlement of Ofra, north of Jerusalem.
The driver crashed into the checkpoint after ignoring police warnings to stop. Security forces reportedly opened fire on the vehicle as it approached the barrier, according to the Nana10 news site.
The driver was not apprehended and managed to flee the scene to the nearby village of Silwad. Security forces were searching the area for the suspect.
Magen David Adom paramedics administered first-aid treatment to the injured policeman, who did not need to be taken to a hospital.
The incident came a day after similar attacks in the southern West Bank. A soldier and a civilian were lightly hurt Tuesday morning when a car rammed into a bus stop in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc south of Jerusalem.
Later Tuesday, an Israeli man from Kiryat Arba was hit by a truck and killed Tuesday afternoon after he emerged from his vehicle, which had just been hit by Palestinian rock throwers.
