An Israeli soldier in his 20s was injured Sunday evening in a terrorist ramming attack in Samaria.

The attack took place in the village of Huwara, the scene of a number of terrorist attacks in recent months.

Other IDF soldiers present at the time of the attack opened fire on the terrorist, who fled the scene.

Israeli security forces have launched a manhunt for the perpetrator.

Army paramedics were dispatched to the scene to treat the injured soldier, who was later evacuated to Beilinson Medical Center in Petah Tikva.

Officials from Beilinson said Sunday night that the soldier is currently listed in moderate condition.

MK Danny Danon (Likud) called on the IDF to shutter all shops and businesses on the main road of Huwara, where the attack took place.

"Another attack in Huwara's death corridor. Thankfully, there were no casualties, but the writing is on the wall. All businesses along the traffic route should be closed, and the entire length and width of the route should be secured. A zero-tolerance policy for terrorism is needed in Huwara."
