An Israeli taxi driver was robbed on Tuesday night by two passengers while driving in the West Bank, the Hebron police station said. According to the victim's complaint, he drove the passengers - who were either Palestinians or Israeli Arabs - from Kiryat Gat to Jaba Junction near Gush Etzion. Once he passed the junction, the two threatened the driver with a knife and stole his taxi. The driver was unharmed. Judea and Samaria Police launched an investigation and began a search for the stolen vehicle. They issued a call to all drivers, particularly cab drivers, to refrain from driving into the West Bank due to the recent rise in robberies, in which some of victims were physically harmed.
