A dozen soldiers wounded in Jerusalem

Feb 06, 2020
The incident is being investigated as a terror attack, according to Israel Police.

Twelve Israeli soldiers were wounded in what Israeli security forces have described as a suspected vehicular ramming attack in central Jerusalem just before 2AM. The Golani soldiers were at the First Station, a popular entertainment spot on the city’s David Remez Street, during a heritage tour ahead of their swearing in ceremony at the Western Wall.

Zilberman said that they had been walking on the sidewalk when the vehicle came from behind and struck them at high speed. The soldiers were not able to shoot at the driver before he fled the scene of the attack.

“This happened in seconds,” Zilberman said.

One of the soldiers, aged 20, was evacuated in critical condition to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. The others were lightly injured and evacuated to hospital.

Police said a large force of officers are carrying out a manhunt near Beit Jala where the car was found.

Shaare Tzedek Medical Center said in a statement that the critically wounded individual suffered from multisystem trauma and was sent to the operating room after undergoing diagnostic procedures.

"One of the injured was in a critical condition and after having surgery, he is in a stable condition but you cannot say that his life is not in danger anymore. The other four are expected to be released later today,
 
" Dr. Alon Schwartz, head of the trauma department at the hospital told KAN.
