Israeli police fire on Palestinian who 'attempted to steal tractor'

Sept. 2, 2008 5:53 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 2, 2008 5:53 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli police officers opened fire at a Palestinian who reportedly attempted to steal a construction vehicle near the Israeli town of Modi'in on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Israeli media, the driver of the tractor was arrested after the run-away bulldozer sparked fears of a violent attack. An Israeli police spokeswoman said the incident was "not terror-related."

No one was injured.

Three people were killed on 1 July when a construction worker drove a bulldozer off a construction site in Jerusalem. Another bulldozer driver was shot dead on July 22 in what appeared to be another attack in Jerusalem.
