Harrowing footage has emerged of a Palestinian car-ramming attack which injured four youths at Israel’s Gush Etzion junction on Thursday.

The video, published by Israel’s Channel 2 News, shows one victim as he is wounded in the attack, and another in pursuit of the driver.

The assailant, 22-year-old Muhammad Arfaiyah from Hebron, was arrested shortly after the incident and admitted to deliberately targeting the youths. Arfaiyah cited nationalistic motives as his reason for the attack.
