Three Israeli soldiers wounded in West Bank

At least three Israeli soldiers have reportedly been wounded after a Palestinian driver ran them over south of the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

According to Israeli police, a vehicle rammed into the soldiers standing by the side of a road near the al-Arroub Palestinian refugee camp in the occupied West Bank governorate of al-Khalil (Hebron) on Wednesday.

One of the soldiers is said to be in critical condition.

The Israeli military said in a statement that it “is conducting a widespread search in the region to locate the vehicle and its driver,” who drove off after the incident.

The Wednesday incident came just hours after another Palestinian drove his car into a train station platform in East al-Quds .

An Israeli police officer was killed and many more were injured there. Israeli forces later shot and killed the driver.

In a similar incident on October 22, Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, a Palestinian man, rammed his car into a railway station in al-Quds. An Israeli was killed and eight others were injured in the incident.

The Palestinian later died of the injuries sustained from gunfire by Israeli forces.

The Tel Aviv regime claims that the incident was deliberate, but the family of the 21-year-old said it was an accident.

The fatal incidents come as tensions have been running high at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds over the past days.

On October 30, Israel closed the al-Aqsa Mosque to Muslim worshippers after an attempt on the life of far-right Israeli rabbi, Yehuda Glick, the previous day. Tel Aviv blamed the incident on Moataz Hejazi, a 32-year-old Palestinian, who was killed during an Israeli raid on his home in the Abu Tor neighborhood of al-Quds.
