As the people of the Jewish state prepared to enter Shabbat, terror struck once again, this time injuring two teenage Israelis. The Times of Israel reports that two teenagers were waiting at a bus stop south of Jerusalem when a terrorist vehicle purposely struck them, leaving one in critical condition:

Two Israelis were hit by a car and injured on Friday while standing at a bus stop outside Elazar in the central West Bank, just south of Jerusalem, in what the military said was a terror attack.

A 17-year-old teenager was seriously wounded and a woman, 19, was moderately hurt, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said.

The two were identified as brother and sister Nahum and Noam Nevis from Elazar.

They were treated at the scene; then Nahum was evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital and his sister Noam was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, both in Jerusalem.

The director of Hadassah, prof. Yoram Weiss said Nahum was in surgery fighting for his life, with a skull fracture and a brain injury.

Doctors at Shaare Zedek said Noam was conscious, but suffering from injuries to her limbs.

The car rolled over after the attack, and when the attacker tried to emerge from it, he was shot dead by an off duty police officer who was driving behind him…
