Six IDF soldiers have been wounded in terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria in the last two days.

On Saturday, one soldier was seriously wounded in a car-ramming attack near al-Fawwar refugee camp south of Hebron.

Reserve soldiers who noticed the terrorist immediately neutralized him.

In a statement, an IDF spokesman said, “A car-ramming terror attack took place a short while ago at a military position near the al-Fawar refugee camp operated by the Judea and Samaria Division.”

He added, “IDF reservists neutralized the terrorist. Security forces are being deployed to bolster operation in the area.”

The wounded soldier was taken to Soroka Hospital for treatment.

This follows a car ramming attack on Friday close to Adorayim Junction that seriously injured one soldier with four other soldiers sustaining light to moderate injuries.

The terrorist responsible for the attack was neutralized and identified as Amr Abd al-Fattah Abu Hussein by the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry.

Last week, one woman sustained moderate to severe injuries and a man suffered minor injuries in a stabbing attack at Mazmuria checkpoint near Har Homa in southern Jerusalem.

The terrorist approached the two victims and stabbed them as they were standing at the checkpoint.

One of the wounded victims shot and killed the terrorist at the scene.

The victims have been identified as a Border Police officer and a civilian security guard.

MDA medics and paramedics provided the wounded with emergency treatment and evacuated them to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

An emergency medic from MDA’s motorcycle unit, Yosef Haim Israeli, reported what he saw.

“When we arrived at the scene, we saw the two stabbing victims. The young woman was sitting and the young man was walking around, both with stab wounds to their bodies.”

He added, “We gave them initial medical treatment, which included stopping the bleeding, bandages and administering medication, and evacuated them to hospital in stable condition.”
