Two Israelis Wounded In Vehicular Terror Attack In Gush Etzion: Terrorist Killed At The Scene
Two Israelis were wounded in a vehicular terrorist attack at Gush Etzion Junction at around 3:40 PM on Tuesday, October 20. The terrorist was shot and killed at the scene.
Ein Kerem hospital subsequently reported that the two victims included a 20-year-old soldier in light condition with wounds to the limbs. Additionally, a 21-year-old civilian received limb and head wounds. Both were evacuated to the hospital fully conscious.
According to the the IDF spokesperson unit, “a commander from the “K’fir” unit of the IDF shot the terrorist after he exited the vehicle wielding a knife.”
The attack comes after an earlier attempted stabbing in Negohot in which a soldier was lightly wounded. Stones were also thrown earlier at a travelling car causing a man to crash. The man, after exiting his vehicle, was struck by a truck in what was reported to be a deliberate vehicular attack.
