A young woman is seriously wounded after being hit by a car near the Tsrifin Junction in central Israel, medics say.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it is taking the woman in her 20s to the adjacent Asaf Harofeh Hospital.

An image purportedly from the scene shows a car crashed into a guard booth at the entrance to an army base in the area.

Police say officers have arrested two men, residents of Rahat and Qalqilya, who are suspected of being involved in the incident.

Police say it is being investigated as a “traffic accident,” not a terror attack.

It says the car refused to stop to calls of traffic cops, and then ran over a pedestrian.
