TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians drove a stolen truck through a security barrier at Ben Gurion airport overnight, Israeli media reported.
The truck entered the airport at 3.30 a.m. and drove past two barriers before stopping near terminal 3, Ynet said.
A security guard fired four shots at the truck's wheels.
The drivers, believed to be Palestinians from Jenin and Qalqiliya, fled the scene but were later arrested.
The incident caused flight delays and heavy traffic around the airport.
Israeli police said they suspect the men took a wrong turn and became alarmed after shots were fire at them.
They are currently being questioned by police.
