2 of 4 soldiers released from hospital after Hebron attacks

Two of four soldiers injured in Palestinian attacks this morning have been released from hospital in “good health,” a spokesperson for the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem says.

A soldier hit by gunfire and another struck by shrapnel will remain in hospital overnight for observation, according to Shoham Rubio.

They were all lightly wounded in two shooting and car-ramming attacks outside the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba, next to Hebron.

During the first incident, shortly before 7 a.m., two Palestinians plowed into a hitchhiking post at the Elias Junction with a car, emerged from the vehicle, and opened fire. Several minutes later, a second Palestinian vehicle plowed into soldiers at the scene of the first attack, lightly wounding one, the IDF said.

The attackers in both incidents were shot dead by troops.
