An Israel Defense Forces soldier was lightly injured on Wednesday when a Palestinian terrorist rammed his car into a military post near Beit Hagai, close to Hebron in Judea.
According to the military, the assailant accelerated towards the IDF post as he approached Junction 200, prompting troops to respond.
Israeli media reported that the Palestinian was shot and “neutralized.”
The injured soldier was evacuated to the hospital in good condition.
The attack comes nine days after Batsheva Nigri, a mother of three from Beit Hagai, was killed and another man was seriously wounded in a terrorist shooting in the same area.
Nigri’s young daughter, who was in the back seat of the car at the time of the attack, was not injured.
In separate incidents on Wednesday evening, two Israeli bus drivers were lightly wounded when Palestinian terrorists threw rocks at vehicles on a highway in northern Samaria.
The men, aged 30 and 48, came under attack while driving on the Route 55 highway near the Arab village of Nabi Ilyas, located close to the Israeli community of Alfei Menashe, reports said.
One driver was wounded by shrapnel in his eyes, while the other suffered a shoulder wound, Rescuers Without Borders (Hatzalah Judea and Samaria) announced. Both were evacuated to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba for treatment.
Video said to be from the scene of the terrorist attack shows the Arabs wielding clubs and throwing stones at the shepherds at a farm northeast of Jerusalem, between the Israeli communities of Ma’ale Mikhmas and Rimonim.
Other residents from the farm who came to help were also reportedly attacked.
A day earlier, IDF soldiers conducting an operation near Ya’bad in northwestern Samaria were attacked by terrorists who threw explosive devices at them from a passing vehicle.
The soldiers responded by opening fire on the terrorists. Additional gunfire was also heard in the area.
Soldiers arrested a number of wounded terrorists and confiscated their vehicle.
