BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at a Palestinian vehicle after it ran into an Israeli border police jeep near the Maale Adumim settlement east of Jerusalem on Saturday, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri told Ma’an that Israeli border police noticed two Palestinians crossing over the separation wall near the al-Zayyim checkpoint on Saturday, before getting aboard a car. When Israeli troops approached the vehicle, al-Samri said, it tried to escape, running into an Israeli military jeep in the process and lightly injuring four Israeli border guards.

The Israeli border guards opened fire at the vehicle, injuring two Palestinians while a third sustained bruising.

All three Palestinians, one of whom had Israeli citizenship, were detained, and the road was closed in both directions, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, adding that security forces were at the scene.
