Guards at the Kalandiya security checkpoint north of Jerusalem opened fire on an Israeli truck driver after they mistakenly thought he was going to ram the checkpoint on Sunday afternoon.




The truck driver had been stoned minutes earlier and was fleeing back to Israel and accidentally hit several cars at the checkpoint, raising the guards' suspicions.




He was moderately-to-seriously wounded and was evacuated to the capital's Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem.
