Three IDF soldiers were injured after being targeted by a Palestinian vehicle which ran them down on Route 60 near Al Arub, southeast of Bethlehem. The vehicle fled the scene immediately after the attack, and the army set up roadblocks and launched searches of the area.
The soldiers were apparently near a military position when they were attacked.
Magen David Adom spokesman Zaki Heller said paramedics treated three Israelis aged 20, one with serious chest wounds, and two moderately injured men with broken bones and injuries in their limbs. The wounded have been evacuated to the Hadassan Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem.
