Itongadol.- A Palestinian terrorist lightly wounded an IDF soldier and an Israeli civilian in an attempted vehicular ramming and stabbing attack on Tuesday at the Gush Etzion Junction in the West Bank.
After ramming his car into the pedestrians, the assailant then emerged from his vehicle, brandishing a knife.
In response, an IDF commander opened fire on the perpetrator, striking and killing him.
Both victims – in their early 20s – were lightly hurt. Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated both of the wounded to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem\’s Ein Kerem neighborhood.
MDA paramedic Dror Eini described the scene of the attack: "When we arrived on the scene we saw an approximately 30-year-old pedestrian standing at the junction who had been hit by the car. He was fully conscious and suffering minor wounds to his limbs."
Eini said that "in addition, we saw an approximately 20-year-old fully conscious man, walking, who was also suffering from a light wound to his limbs."
He said that after receiving initial treatment on the scene, the men were transported to the hospital.
