Israeli sources reported on Saturday at night that four Israeli settlers mistakenly drove into the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and were transported by the Palestinian police to the Israeli Military Coordination Office.The Arutz Sheva fundamental Israeli Website reported that the four entered Bethlehem by mistake and were safely transported by the Palestinian security forces to the Israeli side.

The four settlers were questioned by the Israeli police.

The Palestinian Authority does not regard the entry of Israelis into its territories as illegal, but Israel bars Israelis from entering Areas A, under the Palestinian security control.
