A Holon resident driving near the Palestinian town of Nabi Ilyas in the northern West Bank on Saturday was carjacked by armed Palestinians who ordered him to drive to the nearby Qalqilya.
The driver, who is disabled and in his sixties, was safely extricated and handed over to IDF forces.
The incident occurred at around 2pm Saturday when the man, who was driving alone, was stopped by Palestinians threatening him with a handgun, who planned to steal the car.
When they arrived in Qalqilya, the carjackers told the driver to get out of the vehicle. He quickly called the police, who reported the incident to the Civil Administration.
The IDF prepared to enter the city, but within an hour Palestinian security forces extricated the man, along with his car, and handed him over to the IDF.
Last February, two IDF soldiers accidentally entered Jenin in their military jeep and were accosted by Palestinian youth, who attacked them and their vehicle with stones. One of their weapons was stolen as well.
