Three soldiers were injured by a car driven by a Palestinian man in a suspected vehicular attack on Tuesday evening near the West Bank settlement of Dolev, west of Ramallah.

One of the soldiers was in serious condition and airlifted to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer for treatment. The other two were moderately hurt.

The three victims were reportedly standing near a checkpoint at the Haprasa Junction near the settlement when they were struck by a passing car.

An army statement referred to the incident as a terror attack.

Israeli soldiers “responded to the imminent threat” and shot the suspected assailant dead at the scene, an IDF spokesman confirmed.
