Three Israeli soldiers were injured -- two seriously -- in a suspected terrorist attack today (August 6, 2015) in the West Bank near the Shiloh settlement, when they were intentionally rammed by a car, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports.
The two seriously hurt soldiers sustained head and chest injuries and were on respirators, according to reports. They were evacuated by helicopter to Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem.
Other Israeli soldiers fired at the driver, causing the car to overturn, the Israeli Defense Forces said in a statement.
The driver, a Palestinian, was treated at the scene for a gunshot wound to the chest and then taken to Shaarey Zedek hospital in Jerusalem.
