According to the initial investigation of the incident, four motorcycles arrived at the checkpoint. After the officers signaled them to stop for an inspection, they turned around, hit two of the officers and fled the scene. According to reports within the Arab world, at least one of the motorcyclists has been caught by the IDF.
