Israeli soldier wounded in ramming attack as the terrorist is killed
A 20-year-old Israeli soldier sustained moderate injuries on Thursday in a ramming attack near Hebron. The terrorist was shot and killed by other soldiers at the scene, not far from the Jewish community of Negohot.
According to an initial investigation, the terrorist deliberately veered from the road in order to hit a group of soldiers from the Armored Corps that had been manning an observation post. He accelerated and then hit the soldier.
The soldier was subsequently rushed to the hospital for treatment. According to the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit, the incident happened close to the Jewish community of Negohot.
A paramedic who arrived at the scene said that first responders from the military had already begun treating the soldier when he arrived, and together they evacuated the soldier. “He was fully conscious when we treated him,” the paramedic said.
