The result ended in casualties on both sides, as the Israeli soldiers opened fire on the car. Two men were shot dead, one more suffered a light wound and ended up captured. All the attackers appeared to be the Pakistani citizens.
The incident occurred ten kilometers away from Ramallah, the Palestinian capital city. The Israeli troops reported they were on the duty patrol, but had to stop because their car broke down.
In 2015-2016, the Palestinian militants stuck to the tactics of ramming the Israeli soldiers. A number of such attacks were performed on the West Bank of Jordan; the frequency and the overall number of such incidents decreased after the Israeli fighters became more cautious.
