4 Border Policemen hit by Palestinian driver

Driver says he accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the breaks, and did not intend to harm the soldiers.

Four Border Police soldiers were hit by a car, driven by a Palestinian, at a roadblock near Beit Ummar in Gush Etzion on Saturday.


A Border Police officer shot at the vehicle's wheels, bringing the car to a stop.


The driver claimed in his investigation that the incident was an accident and that he had no intention to hit the Border Police soldiers. He claimed that he accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of the breaks.


The four soldiers were lightly wounded. They were taken to the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem for treatment.
