Israeli reportedly shot in West Bank town of Qalqilya

Media reports say a Jewish Israeli man was shot and critically wounded after driving his vehicle into the West Bank town of Qalqilya.

Palestinian security sources tell the Ynet news site that the man was transferred by the Palestinian Red Crescent to an Israeli ambulance.

Images posted to social media appeared to show that his vehicle was later set on fire.

There is no immediate confirmation from the Israel Defense Forces or rescue services.

It’s unclear what the man was doing in Qalqilya. Israelis are barred from entering West Bank areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

The incident comes a day after police said that two wanted Palestinians, members of the Islamic Jihad terror group, were killed by officers in a raid on Qalqilya.
