Palestinian Terrorist Rams Israeli Soldier

Young soldier suffered damaging injuries to his legs and arms; terrorist shot after trying to stab another soldier

By |

An Israeli soldier was moderately wounded when a Palestinian terrorist rammed him with his vehicle south of Jerusalem on Monday.

The attack occurred just outside the Judean community of Tekoa, a short distance south of Bethlehem.

The assailant reportedly exited his vehicle and tried to stab another soldier before being shot and neutralized. He then received medical attention from Israeli first responders.

The injured soldier is said to be 20 years old.

It should be noted that "moderate" injuries may not sound that bad, but typically result in life-long disabilities, like the loss of an arm or leg. Just because the injury is not life-threatening doesn't mean this young man won't suffer for the rest of his life.
