(SOURCE)   Three people were wounded in a suspected car-ramming attack on Sunday in the Hebron area, preliminary reports said. The driver fled the scene.

The three were two men and a woman in their 20s. One of them suffered severe wounds to his head and limbs. He was taken to Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem for further treatment. The two, who were lightly wounded, were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem.

The incident took place near the Palestinian village of Beit Anun, where a knife-wielding Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces earlier on Sunday after he tried to stab a soldier.

A Palestinian man attempted to stab an Israel Defense Forces soldier Sunday during clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians near Beit Anun, north of Hebron in the West Bank. A Border Police officer shot and killed the assailant. None of the soldiers from the Kfir Brigade were wounded.

A Palestinian was shot dead on Saturday after allegedly attempting to stab Israeli security personnel in a West Bank checkpoint. According to the Israeli military, the Palestinian was shot after charging security guards at the Jalama (Gilboa) Crossing with a knife.
