An Israeli taxi driver was moderately wounded on Tuesday by a stray bullet when two Palestinian passengers attempted to hijack his car. According to an initial investigation, the driver fired a shot in the air after the two men, who were sitting in the back seat, tried to rob him. In the ensuing struggle, his gun misfired and hit him in the leg. Police were searching for the Palestinians, who managed to get away with the car into a village in Samaria.
