An IDF soldier was lightly hurt in the West Bank on Saturday night, after he was hit by a car in what was suspected to be a deliberate vehicular attack.
The incident took place south of Hebron. A driver swerved off the road toward four soldiers patrolling the area, prompting the troops to open fire.
The car was damaged by the gunfire, but the assailant fled the scene.
The army was searching the area for the perpetrator.
One soldier was treated at the scene for light injuries.
Earlier this month, three Israeli soldiers were wounded — two of them seriously — when a Palestinian terrorist plowed his car into them as they stood at a hitchhiking post in the northern West Bank.
Two weeks ago, an IDF soldier was moderately wounded when an explosive device was hurled at an army base near the West Bank settlement of Har Gilo, on the southern outskirts of Jerusalem. The soldier, who suffered injuries to his eye, face, and shoulder was transferred to Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem for further medical treatment.
