An Israeli Arab truck driver arrived at the Tarkumiya checkpoint near Hebron on Monday after his truck was hijacked. The driver was abducted by the hijackers, and tossed out of the vehicle in the nearby village of Idna, Judea Samaria police reported. No one was wounded, and police managed to recover the truck a short time later with the aid of IDF troops. Meanwhile, there were initial reports of a clan fight in Idna. Gunshots may have been fired. The clash appeared to be unrelated to the truck hijacking.
