    According to a report from Channel 12, local youths in Ramallah identified the Israelis as Jews based on their Orthodox appearance, looted their vehicle and broke the equipment inside it, before eventually setting it on fire.
    One eyewitness said the Israelis "survived a certain death" after Palestinian police rescued the pair.
    Once the two had returned to the Israeli territory, they were questioned by Israeli security forces. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the two underwent a medical examination and did not require a hospital treatment.
