The trio noticed a Palestinian woman driving her car toward them. She hit one of them. The soldiers immediately fired at the vehicle, killing the driver.

Magen David Adom evacuated the injured soldier to the Sha’are Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

When security forces searched the driver’s car they found a knife on the dashboard just behind the steering wheel.
