Three people were injured in a car ramming terrorist attack near the town of Dolev in Samaria Tuesday evening.

According to initial reports, among the wounded is one person in serious condition. Magen David Adom (MDA) reports that the wounded is a man in his twenties with moderate to serious injuries; he is suffering from disorientation and injuries to several of his vital systems.

Two other victims are in moderate condition. All three victims have been identified as IDF soldiers, who were guarding the site at the time of the attack.

The terrorist was shot dead by IDF forces at the site.

Dolev is located in Binyamin Region, just north of Jerusalem.

The attack is the first car ramming for several weeks, as the escalation in Arab terror which started last year appears to have ebbed somewhat.

Attacks have however continued, as has a crackdown on Arab terrorism by Israeli security forces in response.

Last night, forces arrested the suspected accomplice in a stabbing attack carried out in Jerusalem on Sunday.

The victim in that attack remains hospitalized in moderate, stable condition.
