An attempted ramming attack was reported in Huwara in the northern West Bank on Friday afternoon after a driver rammed through two military checkpoints, the IDF said.
Footage shared by Palestinian media reportedly from the scene showed Israeli forces operating in the town as heavy gunfire was audible in the background.
The Israeli military said its troops shot at the vehicle and chased the suspect down. He was arrested and will be interrogated by defense establishment officials.
Attempted attack comes after IDF raids, Ben-Gvir's Temple Mount visit
The attempted attack comes following Israeli actions that Palestinians view as provocative. In an overnight between Sunday and Monday, Israeli security personnel conducted a relatively large raid in the West Bank. The raid culminated in the arrest of 17 Palestinians.
Then, on Tuesday night in another raid, IDF forces arrested eight additional Palestinian suspects.
Additionally, this week during Israel's commemoration of Tisha Be'Av, National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir paid a visit to the Temple Mount, a move strongly rebuked by the United States.
Huwara has, historically, been the site of escalated tensions and violence between Palestinians and Israelis. The northern Palestinian town has seen several attacks this year including the murder of Israeli brothers Hillel and Yagel Yaniv.
In the wake of the attack, Israeli settlers rampaged through the town, setting homes and vehicles on fire.
Later, in March, Two IDF soldiers were wounded in another Huwara shooting. Then, in June, another Israeli was wounded by glass shrapnel when his car was shot at while he was driving by.
This is a developing story.
