According to police, a Palestinian vehicle rammed into the two Israelis, who were standing at a bus station near the Kfar Adumim junction.

Magen David Adom paramedics provided initial treatment to the two wounded soldiers in their 20s before evacuating one of them to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Emergency response workers transported the other soldier to Hadassah University Medical Center in the capital's Ein Kerem.

Later Friday, Palestinian media reported that the attacked who carried out the morning's car-ramming was identified as Ramallah resident Fadi Hasib, the brother of the perpetrator of another such attack in the same area last week.

The Palestinian reports named Shadi Hasib as the terrorist in the prior attack.
