3 Israelis Injured in Suspected West Bank Terror Attack

Three Israelis were injured, two seriously, in a suspected terror attack in the West Bank when a car intentionally rammed pedestrians.

The incident occurred Thursday afternoon near the Shiloh settlement located north of Ramallah.

The two seriously hurt pedestrians sustained head and chest injuries and were on respirators, according to reports.

Israeli soldiers fired at the driver, causing the car to overturn, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement. The driver reportedly was treated at the scene.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement praised the soldiers for their quick action and wished the injured a speedy recovery.

“I find it strange that those who hastened to condemn terrorism against Palestinians are silent when terrorism is directed against Jews,” he also said.

The attack came nearly a week after a Palestinian baby was killed in a firebombing on his West Bank home that left his parents and older brother seriously injured.
