A Palestinian driver who appeared to attempt to run over pedestrians in the West Bank has been shot and arrested by Israeli soldiers, the military says.

The IDF says a knife was also found in the man’s car, and it describes the incident as a terror attack.

Surveillance camera footage shows a silver Skoda Superb accelerating dangerously near a bus station at the Gush Etzion Junction, before fleeing.

The IDF says troops launched a pursuit after the car, opening fire at it. Eventually the driver was stopped near the settlement of Elazar, and a knife was found in his car.

Medics say he was wounded by the gunfire, and has been taken to a hospital for medical treatment.

There are no other injuries in the incident.
