Two Israelis are attacked and their car torched after entering downtown Ramallah today.

According to Hebrew and Palestinian media reports, the two Israelis, at least one of whom lives in a West Bank settlement, were set upon by a crowd of locals, and were rescued by Palestinian police, who handed them over to the IDF.

It was not immediately clear why the pair entered Ramallah, and initial reports indicate it may have been in error. According to Army Radio, the two individuals are members of the Breslov Hasidic sect and were lightly wounded.
