JNS.org – Hamam Mesalmeh, the driver responsible for ramming a car into three Israel Defense Forces soldiers in Gush Etzion on Wednesday, turned himself in to security forces and claimed responsibility for the terror attack on Thursday afternoon.

The three IDF soldiers were moderately to seriously wounded in the attack while they were guarding the area on Route 60, close to the Al-Aroub refugee camp in Gush Etzion.

“This vehicular terrorist attack proves, without a doubt, that we are currently in the midst of a third intifada, which [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas is orchestrating by inciting and encouraging terrorist attacks,” Gush Etzion Regional Council head David Pearl said, according to Israel Hayom.

Earlier on Wednesday, an Arab terrorist intentionally ran his vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians near the Shimon Hatzadik light rail station in Jerusalem, killing one person and wounding at least 13 others.
