Palestinian driver rams car into group of soldiers near Hebron


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Palestinian attempted to drive his car into a group of soldiers stationed at the entrance to the West Bank village of Beit Anoun near Hebron.

Two soldiers were injured in the attack and taken by Magen David Adom to a Jerusalem hospital for treatment. The driver was shot and killed by soldiers on the scene.

The Palestinian Maan news agency quoted a witness as saying there were two people riding in the car with Palestinian license plates. He also alleged that the soldiers denied a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance access to the wounded Palestinian driver.
