The vehicle which the Israelis were traveling in caught fire after local Palestinians threw rock and Molotov cocktails at it, however the passengers were successfully evacuated without injury.

After being evacuated, the nine were transferred to law enforcement investigators as the entrance into PA administered territory is strictly prohibited.

The evacuation was conducted via joint IDF-PA cooperation.
