IDF soldier critically wounded in ramming attack near Hebron

IDF forces killed the terrorist on site.


An Israel Defense Forces soldier was seriously injured on Saturday in a vehicular assault near the al-Fawwar camp, located south of Hebron in Judea.

The victim, a reserve soldier from the IDF’s 7018th Battalion, was treated on the scene before being evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva.

Israeli forces neutralized the terrorist.

The attack took place close to where five Israeli soldiers were injured, including one seriously, in a similar attack on Friday.

That attack occurred on the Route 60 highway, close to the Adorayim Junction, just north of the town of Otniel.

On Thursday night, two Israelis were wounded in a stabbing at the Mizmoriya checkpoint near Bethlehem, just south of Jerusalem.

Israel’s Kan News public broadcaster said the terrorist arrived by car from the direction of Jerusalem, got out of the vehicle and stabbed security officers guarding the checkpoint.
