Palestinian detained minutes before ramming stolen truck

A Palestinian from Ramallah, aged 39, was detained Friday in Rishon Letzion in central Israel, after a police chase of his stolen truck. He admitted he was on his way to stage a ramming attack on soldiers. The police were first alerted to the threat by a Holon citizen who reported his truck had been stolen. When they caught up with the truck at Bet Dagan, the terrorist accelerated and fled towards Rishon Lezion, where he was finally apprehended.
