Three Wounded in Suspected Car-Ramming Attack Near Jerusalem
Three Israeli soldiers were wounded on Saturday in a suspected car-ramming terror attack near Jerusalem.
According to Israel Hayom, the incident took place in the area of Gush Etzion, a group of West Bank settlements in close proximity to Jerusalem. The site of the attack is near the Arab village of Kfar Husan, to which the attacking car apparently escaped. The attacker has not been apprehended.
The three victims are reported to be conscious and in good to moderate condition, suffering from injuries to their lower bodies.
Israel Hayom quoted the Israeli ambulance service Magen David Adom saying, “At 8:56pm a report was received at MDA Center 101 in the Jerusalem area about three young pedestrians injured by a vehicle near Kfar Husan. An IDF medical team is giving medical aid to three people who were lightly wounded.”
Car-ramming has been a common tactic used by Palestinian terrorists for well over a decade.
