A terrorist carried out a car-ramming and stabbing attack south of Jerusalem today. Arutz Sheva's David Rosenberg reports that the attack at a junction in the Gush Etzion region left an IDF soldier injured and the terrorist dead:

According to an initial investigation into the attack, the attack rammed his car into a fortified position used by soldiers guarding the popular hitchhiking spot. A streetlight was hit and knocked down in the attack, striking the soldier...

MDA first responder Zachi Yahav described the soldier’s injuries: “When we arrived at the scene, we saw a young man roughly 20 years old, fully conscious, who had suffered contusions on his upper and lower limbs as a result of the car crash.”

“With the help of an IDF medical unit that was at the scene, we provided him medical treatment, loaded him into an ambulance, and evacuated him to the hospital in moderate stable condition while we continued to treat him..."

The terrorist was shot and killed by security forces after he lunged at them while brandishing a knife.
