Israeli soldier injured in West Bank car-ramming attack


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli soldier was wounded in a car-ramming attack in the West Bank.

Israeli troops at the scene shot dead the Palestinian driver after he drove into a group of soldiers Thursday on a road south of Nablus, between the Hawara and Tapuach junctions, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The soldier, who was lightly injured, was treated at Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah, in central Israel.

The two junctions have been the sites of several Palestinian car-ramming and stabbing attacks in recent weeks.
