  • Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinian teenager after alleged car-ramming attack

The Palestinian teenager allegedly perpetrated a car-ramming attack, injuring two Israeli settlers before he was shot and seriously injured by Israeli forces at the junction.

Two Israelis have been wounded in a car-ramming attack in the West Bank on Friday morning.

The young man was accused of ramming his vehicle towards two Israeli settlers at Efrat Junction and then at Gush Etzion Junction, in the south of occupied Bethlehem.

The army said the driver then got out of his auto with a knife and tried to stab soldiers.


The 70-year-old victim was lightly injured on his head and was taken to Shaarei Tzedek hospital.

Local witnesses, however, told Anadolu Agency by phone that Israeli troops had opened fire on a Palestinian man - without provocation - as he drove from Bethlehem to the city of Hebron, leaving him injured.

The 17-year-old terrorist was shot and critically wounded as he ran at the soldiers.

The incident took place at the Gush Etzion Junction in the central West Bank, a common site for terror attacks due to its close proximity to both Israeli settlements and Palestinian villages.
