In the last hour, a Palestinian driver attempted to run over IDF troops during a security patrol in the village of Husan, northwest of Bethlehem. Three soldiers were lightly injured and were given medical treatment at the scene— IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) 23 июня 2018 г.
Numerous similar attacks have taken place in the disputed territory of the West Bank: among the latest, a car-ramming attack that wounded an Israeli soldier near a security checkpoint near the Shavei Shomron settlement.
The West Bank was seized by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War in the course of a long-lasting struggle between Israelis and Palestinians for the territory of what was previously the British Mandate of Palestine. The West Bank is mostly populated by Arabs and the United Nations considers this territory to be illegally occupied by Israel.
The injured soldiers were taken to the hospital for further treatment. IDF troops are searching the area for the suspect. The circumstances of the incident are being looked into— IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) 23 июня 2018 г.
