An Israeli woman believed to be in her late 50s was wounded Tuesday evening in what appears to have been a terrorist attack.

The incident took place near the city of Beitar Illit, south of Jerusalem.

The victim reached an IDF checkpoint, where soldiers called for help. Paramedics said the woman had suffered neck and head wounds and was semiconscious.

Doctors said the woman is in moderate-to-serious condition. A second female driver attacked in the area is in light condition.

The first woman's injuries appear to have been caused by both rocks thrown at her car and a molotov cocktail. It was initially believed that she had been hit by gunfire.
