A little after noon today, three IDF servicemen doing construction work along the side of the road were struck by a car driven by a Palestinian Arab male.
The IDF says one has moderate injuries to all four limbs while the others are injured lightly – scrapes and bruises. All were treated at the scene by ambulance crews and then taken to hospitals in Jerusalem for treatment.
This is believed by the military to have been a deliberate vehicle-ramming attack. A fourth soldier fired at the driver and killed him. In the Arab media, he’s named as Ramzi Abu Yabes, a resident of Dheisheh refugee camp.
