Jerusalem [Israel], Mar 17 (ANI): At least two Israeli soldiers were killed and two others were severely injured when a Palestinian man rammed his vehicle into them in the northern West Bank on Friday.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the ZAKA emergency response organisation reported all of the victims were in their 20s and evacuated by helicopter to the Rabin Medical Center in Petach Tikva.

A military spokesman called the incident a "terror attack."

The Israeli security services stated that the attacker was identified as 26-year-old Allah Kabhha from the village of Barta'a in the West Bank.

The attack took place on the 585 highway near the entrance to the West Bank settlement of Mevo Dotan some 10 kilometers southwest of Jenin.

Israeli security forces captured the Kabhha shortly after the attack.

Hamas spokesperson Hazam Kasam said that "this attack makes it clear that the intifada is continuing for the Palestinian people." (ANI)
