Car ramming attack in Samaria

Arab terrorists rammed their car into a group of IDF soldiers operating in the Arab village of Ne’ima

around 3:30 a.m. on Monday morning, seriously wounding an officer and lightly injuring another soldier. In response, the troops fired at the terrorists, killing two of them and lightly injuring another. “Terrorists rammed their vehicle into a number of soldiers who had stopped by the side of the road at the entrance to the village,” the Israel Defense Forces said.

The seriously wounded officer was evacuated in stable condition after being anesthetized and ventilated. A doctor treating him stated that he was not in a life-threatening condition and that he was undergoing an operation. The lightly wounded soldier was evacuated with injuries to his legs. Both injured soldiers, about 20 years of age, were taken to Tel Hashomer hospital in Ramat Gan on the outskirts of Tel Aviv.

Dozens of Arabs gathered at the scene of the attack later that morning and began rioting, throwing rocks and other objects at IDF forces. The Hamas terror group welcomed the attack, stating that “the death of the Shaheeds west of Ramallah this morning proves that the Palestinian people are continuing their struggle against the occupier until it gains all its rights and liberates its land. The message that the rebelling youngsters are conveying is that they will not calm until the occupation is banished, the holy places are liberated and the plans to Judaize Jerusalem will not come to pass,” Hamas said.

The IDF soldiers had been conducting raids in the village of Ne’ima and were on their way out when their truck broke down. As they stood stood outside attempting to move the vehicle, they were rammed.
