OCCUPIED AL-QUDS, PALESTINOW.COM — Israeli sources have reported that four soldiers were injured, late on Saturday evening, in what was described as a car ramming attack at Hizma military roadblock, north of occupied East Jerusalem, before the driver fled the scene.
The Israeli Magen David Adom (National emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service) said one of the soldiers, in his thirties, suffered moderate wounds after being struck in the head and limbs.
It added that the three other soldiers suffered light injuries, and that all the wounded soldiers were being treated at the scene.
Following the incident, the Israeli army initiated extensive searches in the area, especially in and around Hizma Palestinian town, looking for the car and its driver.
Palestinian media outlets said dozens of soldiers surrounded Hizma town, and closed all its entrances, before the army invaded its main streets.
They added that, despite the Israeli allegations, the incident was likely a traffic accident and not an intentional ramming attack, and that the driver apparently fled the scene to avoid being shot and killed by the soldiers, to avoid what happened in previous similar incidents in the West Bank, such as the case of Yousef Raed Anqawi, 20, and Amir Mahmoud Darraj, 20, who were killed by the soldiers, when the army claimed they deliberately rammed soldiers with their cars.
On Saturday evening, the soldiers abducted a young man, identified as Mohammad Khalaf, from Burqin town, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, while crossing Za’tara military roadblock, south of Nablus, also in northern West Bank.
