Nine Israelis rescued after being attacked in Ramallah

A group of nine Israelis on Wednesday evening had to be rescued from the Palestinian Arab city of Ramallah, after locals attacked one of their vehicles.

The Israelis reportedly willingly entered the city. Locals who noticed them hurled rocks and firebombs at one of their cars, which caught fire.

All nine escaped without injury. Eight of them re-entered Israel through the Qalandiya checkpoint, while the ninth was temporarily questioned by PA security forces before being returned to Israel.

All nine are being questioned by security forces for violating a military order prohibiting entry of Israelis to areas under the control of the Palestinian Authority.

The IDF said that the circumstances under which the nine entered Ramallah are being investigated.
