A man was hit and lightly hurt in a suspected vehicular ramming attack Monday morning between the West Bank settlement of Shavei Shomron and the Chomesh outpost, sparking a manhunt for a suspect who fled the scene.
Security forces set up checkpoints in the Nablus area in an attempt to apprehend the driver of the vehicle, police and IDF officials said.
It was not immediately clear if the incident was a deliberate car-ramming or a hit and run accident.
The Magen David Adom ambulance service said an 18-year-old man was lightly injured in the hit-and-run and taken to the Homesh front gate in a private car, where he received medical treatment from MDA and army paramedics.
The victim was then taken to the Rabin Medical in Petah Tikva for further treatment.
