On Sunday night it was reported that a Palestinian driver attempted and failed to hit IDF personnel with his car in a remote part of the West Bank. IDF troops found the car with the suspect's family still inside, with the suspect assumed to have escaped.

The incident was reported to have occurred in the vicinity of Dayr Abu Mash'al, a West Bank village some 15km east of Ben Gurion Airport.

No injuries were reported, and the family members have been taken in for investigation by the IDF.
