A Border Police officer was hurt in an apparent car ramming near the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem shortly after midnight Thursday, a law enforcement spokesperson said.
The 20-year-old officer was taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical with moderate injuries, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.
“He was fully conscious and suffered from injuries to his head and abdomen,” an MDA medic said.
Police said the ramming occurred while troops were working to move illegal structures built in an area near the West Bank crossing
Troops opened fire toward the suspect’s vehicle after he rammed into the officer and subsequently arrested the driver.
The suspect’s condition was not immediately clear.
