IDF troops shot a Palestinian ambulance that was carrying a pregnant woman in labor early Saturday because the vehicle was behaving in a "suspicious manner," the army said. Israeli troops, in Nablus to arrest wanted militants, fired at the ambulance as it approached them, hitting a headlight, the army said. The Palestinian driver of the ambulance and his assistant said no one was hurt, but the ambulance's engine was damaged by the gunfire. They said they had to call another ambulance to take the pregnant woman to the hospital.
