Five Israeli soldiers were injured in a car-ramming attack in the West Bank.

The driver suspected of ramming his car into the group of soldiers near the Hizme checkpoint northeast of Jerusalem was arrested later the same night after a manhunt, the IDF said in a statement.

The driver was arrested, along with his father, in Hizme and taken for questioning, according to the report.

The soldiers were in the area on an “operational mission.” They were evacuated to two Jerusalem hospitals with three of the soldiers moderately injured and two lightly injured.

The IDF said in its statement that the attack was terrorist in nature, and that the driver ran them over on purpose.

The incident took place on 7 July 2019.
