JERUSALEM (AP) -- A group of Palestinians attacked two soldiers who mistakenly drove an army vehicle into the West Bank city of Jenin on Monday, the military said.

The military said the Palestinians surrounded their vehicle, threw rocks at the soldiers and stole a gun. A female soldier was wounded and later evacuated to hospital, it said.

"It was an attempted lynching," the military said.

It said the soldiers had entered Jenin "accidentally," probably due to a GPS mistake.

The vehicle was extracted from the city with the cooperation of Palestinian security forces, which are seen in a video circulating online alongside the silver truck attempting to manage the situation.
