TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Three Palestinian policemen were injured on Friday after being run over by an illegal car while setting up a checkpoint to investigate cars in the village of Bala in the occupied West Bank district of Tulkarem as part of an ongoing crackdown on stolen vehicles and Israeli-registered vehicles being driven by Palestinians with West Bank IDs. 

Medical sources told Ma’an that Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances transferred the injured policemen to the Thabet Thabet governmental hospital, and noted that they had suffered from bruises and fractures. 

Palestinian police spokesperson Luay Irzeiqat told Ma’an that during an official mission for Palestinian police in Bala to detect illegal cars and catch wanted Palestinians, the policemen were surprised when they saw a car speeding towards them. 

Irzeiqat added that the police had chased the car and detained the driver, adding that he would be interrogated and all legal procedures would be adhered to. 

He added that a number of wanted Palestinians were detained and several illegal vehicles were seized during the police mission in Bala. He also said that the police would not “back down” on its policies against illegal cars in Bala and all of the West Bank.
