Palestinian throws knife at Israeli soldier on West Bank highway

A Palestinian teen throws a knife at an Israeli soldier at a checkpoint along a West Bank highway on Thursday, causing no injury, the army says.

The suspect flees the scene, prompting a manhunt by Israeli forces in the area.

“A Palestinian minor took out a knife and threw it at an IDF soldier at a checkpoint near the Route 443 highway. There were no injuries,” the army says.

Route 443 is one of two main highways that connect Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and runs through portions of the West Bank.
