Three soldiers were hurt in a ramming incident that took place Saturday night close to the settlement of Beit Omar to the south of Gush Etzion.
A Palestinian Authority police officer from the hamlet of Tzurif, a terrorist, was killed in the incident.
The three injured troops were transported to hospitals in Jerusalem for medical attention.
Two troops were sent to Hadassah hospital in Ein Kerem while aware and in light to moderate condition.
The third soldier was brought to Shaare Tzedek hospital and taken to the operating room. He is allegedly in lousy shape.
The terrorist is Mahmud Raaud Naif Biradaia, 23, of the town of Surif near Gush Etzion, according to Palestinian accounts.
MDA paramedics Ariel Rabi and Eli Gertner, who provided first aid to the injured, reported what they saw when they got to the site: “When we arrived at the scene, we noticed three young men, about the age of 20, laying completely conscious with wounds to their limbs.
With the assistance of an IDF medical team, we provided emergency medical attention at the scene, including bandaging bleeding wounds and delivering medications. We then evacuated the patients to the hospital in severe, moderate, and light conditions.
Shlomo Ne’eman, the chairman of the Gush Etzion Regional Council and the head of the Yesha Council, reacted to the incident by saying: “Once again, our adversaries raised their heads and tried to murder Jews only because they are Jews and reminded us of the substantial dangers against us.
How a holy holiday like Ramadan can become a time of terrorist attacks is beyond comprehension. Judea and Samaria will continue to see development, and people will feel safe using Israel’s highways. We will pray for them and wish those hurt a swift recovery.
