Vehicle ramming attack kills two Israeli soldiers in West Bank

Vehicle ramming attack kills two Israeli soldiers in West Bank

Israeli media reported two people were killed and three injured in what they described as a suspected auto ramming near the Palestinian city of Jenin in the northern West Bank. All of the victims were in their 20s and evacuated by helicopter to the Rabin Medical Center in Petach Tikva. The terrorist initially fled the scene but was apprehended by security forces shortly thereafter. A coalition of Palestinian groups called for confrontations with soldiers and settlers after Friday prayers, according to The Times of Israel.

The attack took place near Mevo Dotan, in the northern West Bank.


Hamas has claimed responsibility for the attack stating, "The attack in Jenin comes 100 days after Trump's decision and makes it clear that our people's intifada for Jerusalem is continuing". In addition, two people were seriously injured. The forces fired rubber-coated steel rounds at the protesters, injuring one of them.

Three were injured by live fire near Khan Younis, one near Nahal Oz, two near Jabalia.
