Wednesday, 2 September 2020 | An IDF [Israel Defense Forces] soldier and a policeman were lightly wounded in a car-ramming attack at Tapuach Junction in the northern West Bank [Judea and Samaria], police said Wednesday morning.
According to the police, [the terrorist] approached from the direction of the Arab village of Huwara in southern Nablus and rammed his car at a police checkpoint where the two servicemen were stationed.
The driver then exited the vehicle and continued to advance toward them with a knife drawn. The injured officer opened fire and neutralized the attacker, who is in moderate condition.
Magen David Adom [Israel’s ambulance service] paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after and provided medical treatment to the two service members who sustained mild injuries. They were both transferred to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva for further treatment.
“When we arrived at the scene, the two wounded, aged 20 and 23, were walking around the scene conscious and suffering from minor injuries,” said paramedic Aviel Mamelia. “We provided them with preliminary medical care and transferred them for further treatment at the hospital.”
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that the incident is currently being investigated but is believed to be a deliberate attack.
