Israeli occupation forces opened fire, on Friday, at a Palestinian-owned vehicle before abducting the driver, and confiscating his vehicle, in the town of Huwara, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, local sources reported.

Soldiers opened heavy live fire towards a Palestinian-owned vehicle on a busy street in the town, forcing store owners to close their doors. There were no reports of any gunshot injuries.

Reports said that the army assaulted the young man Anan Abu Hania, before abducting him and confiscating his vehicle.

Military vehicles were shown, on social media platforms, speeding through the town, and later soldiers are shown opening heavy indiscriminate gun fire on the busy street.

The army justified the attack by claiming that the driver of the vehicle attempted to ram one of their soldiers.
