An attempted vehicular attack occurred in the West Bank settlement of Adam on Thursday evening.

According to the IDF, a female terrorist came to the entrance of the settlement and hit a police vehicle. Three civilians were lightly wounded and evacuated to the hospital for further treatment.

The terrorist was also given medical treatment and arrested, according to the ZAKA rescue and recovery organization.

United Hatzalah volunteer EMS personnel reported that they treated three people following the incident.

“When I arrived at the scene, I saw a private vehicle had rammed into a police cruiser and the gate of the town. I treated three people at the scene who all suffered from light injuries, thankfully. I joined other medical teams as we continued treatment during transport. All injured persons were transported to Hadassah-University Medical Center, on Jerusalem’s Mount Scopus,” EMT Michael Cohen said.
