Details emerge of second vehicle attack south of Jerusalem

Israeli media reported a “large commercial vehicle with Palestinian plates” was driven into a junction in the Gush Etzion cluster of settlements south of Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank, late on Wednesday.

Three soldiers have suffered “moderate-to-severe” injuries, according to Ynet News, and Israeli forces are now scouring the area after the assailants escaped towards Hebron following the attack.

Barricades have been erected to try and catch the suspects, who drove into the army post near a Palestinian refugee camp close to the group of settlements.
