Soldier Moderately Injured in Gush Etzion Car Ramming

Yerushalayim (Andrew Friedman/TPS) – An IDF soldier was moderately wounded Monday when a Palestinian driver rammed his car into a makeshift checkpoint in eastern Gush Etzion. The 20-year-old soldier was treated at the scene for wounds to his arms and legs and evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim. The assailant was killed after exiting the car holding a knife, apparently with the intention of stabbing a soldier

Magen David Adom paramedic Zaki Yahav said “When we arrived at the scene we saw a 20-year-old man fully conscious but suffering from wounds in his legs and arms after being hit by a car. With assistance from IDF medical teams that were on site, we administered first aid and put him in an intensive care ambulance and evacuated him to the hospital. He is listed in moderate condition and stable.”
