The Times of Israel reports: Four people were arrested Tuesday night after they rammed a security barrier at Ben Gurion Airport and two of them then attempted to flee on foot, prompting a chase by security personnel.

The four — later reported to be Israeli Arabs — arrived at Ben Gurion Airport Tuesday evening, and did not heed the orders of security personnel to stop for a routine check. The suspects rammed the gate with their vehicle, and sped toward Terminal 3, the airport’s main terminal for international travel, about four kilometers from the security checkpoint.

The vehicle stopped some 200 meters from the barrier, due to the presence of a security vehicle, and two of the occupants fled on foot. They were eventually caught by security guards, arrested and transferred to police. The occupants who remained in the car were also arrested.

There were no injuries reported.
