Car-ramming attack in Gush Etzion – 3 IDF soldiers wounded; Muslim terrorist eliminated
BREAKING: Car-ramming attack at the Gush Etzion Junction near the Arab village of Beit Ummar, south of Jerusalem. Three IDF soldiers were wounded in the terror attack.
The Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated by IDF forces.
Two of the soldiers were lightly wounded and one is in moderate condition.
The three soldiers were performing construction work along the side of the road when they were rammed by the Muslim terrorist as he traveled down the Route 60 highway near the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, south of the Gush Etzion Junction, the IDF said in a statement.
MDA emergency first responders treated the three victims at the scene. The injured were then evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital and Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
The Muslim terrorist was identified as 32-year-old nurse Ramzi Abu Yabes from Bethlehem’s Dheisheh neighborhood.
Shortly after the terror attack, Muslim terrorists and jihad sympathizers gathered outside the terrorist’s home in Dheisheh, chanting “we are people of Mohammad Deif” and “in spirit and blood, we’ll redeem the martyr”.
