Suspects open fire at Israeli soldiers near Ramallah

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Shots were fired from a Palestinian car at Israeli soldiers in a Ramallah village overnight Wednesday, Israel's army said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the shots were fired at Israeli forces as a car exited the village of Nilin.

Another car then approached an Israeli army commander and tried to run him over, she added. The Israeli commander fired shots at the vehicle, which fled the scene.

Weekly non-violent protests take place in Nilin to demonstrate against the annexation of village lands by Israel's separation wall.

Around one third of the village is cut off by the wall, which was declared contrary to international law by the International Court of Justice in 2004.
