An Israeli who strayed into a Palestinian suburb of Jerusalem Friday was attacked and his car was torched by angry residents.
Palestinian security forces in Abu Dis protected the man, who was lightly wounded, and handed him over to Israeli authorities. He was taken to a Jerusalem hospital.
Several Palestinians were reportedly injured in the riots during confrontations with Israeli forces who arrived at the scene.

The military said around 200 rioters “hurled rocks, burned the civilian’s vehicle and blocked his exit from the town. IDF and Border Police forces entered the town in coordination with (Palestinians) and extracted the civilian.”
It was not immediately clear whether the man had entered Abu Dis on purpose or by accident.
