Israeli's car set on fire

6 Palestinians arrested over attack of Israeli in Abu Dis

Suspects arrested in attack on 59-year-old Tel Aviv resident who got lost and accidentally entered the Palestinian village, where he was pelted with stones and his car was set on fire.

The IDF and Border Police arrested overnight Saturday six Palestinians from Abu Dis who are suspected of attacking an Israeli man after he accidentally entered the village.



The Israeli forces encountered rioting during the arrest raid, with a grenade being thrown at IDF soldiers. Regardless, no Israeli troops were hurt and no damage was caused.


The 59-year-old Israeli man from Tel Aviv went to Wadi Qelt to ride horses and got lost on his way back, ending up in Abu Dis near the Al-Quds University campus, where several Palestinians noticed him and started hurling stones at him.

Palestinian security forces who arrived at the scene protected him and contacted the Jerusalem area's District Coordination and Liaison Office in order to hand him over to the IDF and Civil Administration.


The Israeli was then taken to the Palestinian security forces' local station in Abu Dis to await extraction. When the Palestinian forces disembarked towards the Israeli forces in order to hand him over, a protest broke out, in which some 200 Palestinians rioted and threw rocks.


The Palestinian rioters also completely burned down the Israeli's car.


Both the Israeli and the Palestinian forces had to ensconce themselves in one of the university's buildings until the Israeli forces arrived to extricate him.


Two of the Palestinian security forces personnel were wounded in the incident.


The Israel, who suffered a head injury among other things, was taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for treatment.
