Jordanian Arab injures Israeli woman in attempted carjacking

A Jordanian Arab on Friday attempted to hijack a car in northern Israel before fleeing and being shot and wounded by a security officer.

The Arab was arrested and security forces were investigating the suspicion that he is a Jordanian citizen. A Jordanian identity card was reportedly found on his person.

The attack began on Route 90 in the Jordan Valley, when the Arab threw a stone at a vehicle, causing the driver to veer off course and hit the road’s safety railing. The attacker who was apparently hiding nearby emerged and, police said, tried to forcibly remove the driver.

A passerby who arrived on the scene made the Arab flee. The driver was evacuated to a hospital with light wounds.
