Four Palestinians in three vehicles tried to run over a group of soldiers near Ramallah.

Two cars and a bulldozer tried to break through a dirt roadblock Wednesday afternoon near the Jewish community of Maaleh Levona.

The group of reservists fired into the air and then arrested the Palestinians, who were turned over for questioning. No one was injured.

The incident comes two days after a Palestinian drove his car into a group of soldiers near Jerusalem’s Old City, injuring 17.

Shortly after, a Palestinian teen, 16, tried to stab a soldier at the Hawara checkpoint. The same checkpoint was the scene of an acid attack on a soldier Monday. The soldier has not regained his sight in one eye as a result of the attack.
