Northern District police arrested two men they believe may be linked to a suspected attempt to run over a group of IDF soldiers on Monday morning.

In a statement on Monday afternoon, the spokesman for the Northern District said that police received a call from soldiers who were taking part in an orientation drill on the side of a road near the village of Shaab east of Acre Monday morning, when a car veered toward them in an apparent attempt to run them over.

No soldiers were hurt in the incident.

On Monday afternoon police said they had arrested two suspects, both men in their 20s from a village near the scene of the incident. They are currently undergoing questioning and will be brought for a remand extension at the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court Monday night.
