BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces opened fire on a vehicle in Bethlehem on Thursday night after it attempted to "run over" soldiers, the military said in a statement.

"A Palestinian vehicle attempted to run over soldiers near a military post in the area of Bethlehem," the military said in a statement.

The soldiers "responded by opening fire," the statement continued, "identifying a hit."

The military said soldiers were still "searching for the vehicle."

Bethlehem is located in Area A, the less than 20 percent of the West Bank that is under Palestinian civil and military control according to the Oslo Accords.

The city, however, is ringed by Israeli military bases and checkpoints, as well as Jewish settlements.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

So much for Israeli claims that there is any kind of Palestinian control anywhere in Palestine. The re-invasion of the West Bank should be the final straw to impel Abbas to hand the keys back to Israel and shut down the PA. It does what exactly? Control garbage pick-up? Not even that today.
