Terror struck the Holy Land today, leaving one of Israel’s brave defenders injured. The Times of Israel reports on the car-ramming attack that found the wounded IDF soldier and his terrorist attacker being airlifted for treatment in the same helicopter:

An Israeli soldier was moderately wounded Tuesday in what the military said was a suspected ramming attack near the West Bank settlement of Halamish, outside of Ramallah.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said paramedics treated the 19-year-old at the scene for an injury to his legs. He was transported by helicopter to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem…

The army said the driver “arrived at the scene in a vehicle and accelerated toward Israel Defense Forces soldiers who were protecting the road. The terrorist hit one of the soldiers who was injured in his leg and evacuated by military helicopter for medical treatment at a hospital…”

First responders indicated that the alleged attacker had been evacuated in the same helicopter as the soldier after the attack near Halamish, a settlement also known as Neve Tzuf.

The suspected attack came amid a recent rise in violence by Palestinians against Israeli civilians and soldiers in the West Bank and Jerusalem, including a deadly shooting attack last month…
