Four Palestinians were arrested on Wednesday afternoon after they tried to run over IDF soldiers near Ma'ale Levona north of Ramallah. No one was wounded in the attempt, and no damage was caused.
The Palestinians drove to an earth barrier near the settlement in 3 vehicles - 2 cars and one bulldozer - and tried to break the barrier and run over the soldiers.
The soldiers shot in the air and arrested the assailants, who were then questioned by police. Many police and IDF troops were called to the scene.
On Monday night, 19-year-old Kassem Mughrabi from east Jerusalem rammed his BMW into a group of soldiers at a central Jerusalem thoroughfare, wounding fifteen people before being shot dead by an off-duty IDF officer.
Monday's attack came after two back-to-back bulldozer attacks in Jerusalem in July which left three Israelis dead and dozens wounded. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1222017380419&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFullRELATED
