The Palestinian driver of a vehicle of a car that sped away from a checkpoint was severely injured when Israeli border police fired at his vehicle.  The car careened off the road as Israeli border police opened fire, and four other passengers fled the scene.

According to Israeli military sources, the border police fired at the vehicle after it approached a checkpoint, then turned around and began speeding away.  They gave no explanation for the discrepancy of an earlier report that the man was an Israeli Arab who had been fired on by unknown gunmen.
