Israel arrests Palestinian alleged to have rammed car into Border Police officers

Security forces announced on Wednesday the arrest of an east Jerusalem Palestinian man on suspicion of being behind a vehicular attack in the A-Tur neighborhood in the capital last month, in which four Border Police officers sustained light to moderate injuries.

The suspect had turned himself in on April 26, a day after the attack.

The Shin Bet intelligence agency said evidence collected at the scene of the attack, and the subsequent investigation pointed to a 31-year-old suspect named Majdi Muhammad Salah, a resident of the Shuafat refugee camp, who holds an Israeli resident card. "He carried out the vehicular attack due to nationalistic motives," the Shin Bet said.
