Israeli forces raid Bethlehem area in search of alleged car ramming attacker


BETHLEHEM, Thursday, February 06, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces raided today several neighborhoods in the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem in what appears to be a manhunt for a driver who allegedly carried out a car-ramming attack against Israeli soldiers in West Jerusalem earlier this morning, said local sources.

They said that a large army unit raided the city and conducted searches of homes in Bethlehem, Beit Jala and nearby towns after the army claimed that the vehicle used in the attack that injured 14 Israeli soldiers, one critically, has been found in Beit Jala.

The raids sparked clashes between the soldiers and dozens of Palestinian youths. The soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets, sound bombs and teargas canisters at the Palestinians injuring some, including a cameraman who was hit in the stomach by a rubber bullet.

Meanwhile, the manhunt for the alleged attacker, continues in the area.
