Three IDF Soldiers Injured In Car-Ramming Attack In Gush Etzion

Three IDF soldiers were injured in a suspect car-ramming attack at the Gush Etzion junction in the West Bank south of Jerusalem, the IDF confirmed on Monday.

The military said the troops were hit while they were doing construction work on a road between Beit Ummar and El-Aroub.

Magen David Adom paramedics said two were lightly injured and evacuated to a nearby hospital. The third, who was moderately injured with a reported head injury, was taken via ambulance to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. His condition was later downgraded to light.

The driver, identified by the Palestinian Red Crescent Society as Ramzi Abu Yabes from the Dheisheh refugee camp, died at the scene after being shot by an IDF reservist on duty.
