The Israel Defense Forces says a soldier was wounded in the suspected car-ramming attack in Huwara.
The military says that “during routine IDF activity in the area of the town of Huwara, a vehicle accelerated toward an IDF soldier and rammed into him.”
“An additional soldier in the area fired toward the vehicle, which fled the scene,” the IDF says.
The IDF adds that the soldier’s family has been notified.
Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva says the soldier’s condition is moderate, not light as initially reported.
