At least 8 Israeli soldiers wounded in West Bank car attacks


(JTA) — At least eight Israeli soldiers were wounded in two separate vehicular attacks in the West Bank.

The first of the attacks occurred Friday morning, when two soldiers were injured after a Palestinian man rammed them with his car outside the Maale Adumim settlement near Jerusalem. The assailant then reportedly exited the vehicle and, knife in hand, charged at the soldiers. He was shot and killed by a civilian, Ynet reported.

Later in the day, six soldiers were wounded when a car plowed into them near the Beit Ummar refugee camp in the southern West Bank. The attacker was shot at the scene.
