On Thursday afternoon, the third terrorist attack in just a few hours against Israeli targets took place. An Israeli soldier was slightly injured after he was shot outside the Dolev settlement in the West Bank. The soldier was shot by a passing car. Large forces are chasing the perpetrators.
This is the third terrorist attack in about twelve hours. Early Thursday morning, twelve soldiers were injured when a car drove into a crowd. One of the soldiers is in critical condition. A few hours later, a police officer was shot in the arm in the Old City of Jerusalem. The police officer was slightly injured in the attack.
The perpetrator after today’s first terrorist attack is still at large. The car used in the attack was found abandoned outside Bethlehem. In the shooting attack in the old town, the terrorist was shot and killed by other police officers who were present.
The attacks come the day after the terrorist group Hamas called on the Palestinians to intensify confrontations with Israel.
The last 24 hours have also been very turbulent between Palestinians in the West Bank and Israeli forces. Three Palestinians were killed in the confrontations.
