An Arab man who is driving a minivan in the West Bank city of Hebron has been spotted driving it as if it were an armored car.
On Wednesday, a woman in her 20s was standing near the car when she noticed that the windshield was cracked, the local newspaper Ynet reported.
She called the police, who confirmed the man was driving a black minivan, Ynet said.
The woman and her friends called the car a “baggage” and said it appeared that it belonged to the military, YNet said.
On Thursday, the police detained the man and confiscated his vehicle, the report said.
“The officer was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for a head wound, the newspaper said.”
The incident has raised questions about the use of military vehicles in the area, especially in areas where there is a high number of Palestinian deaths and injuries.
In the past, the Israeli military has denied allegations that they use vehicles for military purposes, but the Palestinian Center for Human Rights has said that Israeli forces sometimes use them as well.
The Israeli military said it was taking the incident seriously, adding that the officer is being treated for his injuries.
The military said the vehicle was parked in the Israeli-occupied West Bank at a time when Palestinians were protesting against the military’s demolition of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
The military said in a statement that it is monitoring the situation closely.
