An Israeli taxi driver was attacked on Tuesday after entering the northern West Bank city of Nablus, where Israeli security forces killed three Palestinian terror suspects during an operation earlier in the day.
According to police, the driver told officers he entered Nablus to have work done on his car, a common practice among Israelis who prefer the cheaper prices of Palestinian mechanics across the Green Line.
After identifying him as Israeli, local Palestinians threw rocks and other objects at the cab, damaging the vehicle and lightly injuring the driver, a police statement said.
He then fled to a military checkpoint where he received medical treatment, before being detained by police for questioning. Israelis are barred from entering West Bank areas under Palestinian control.
Police said the driver was later released under unspecified conditions. Posted By Ghost
