Israeli soldiers dead, 2 hurt in West Bank car attack

West Bank car attack
A Palestinian driver rammed into two Israeli soldiers in the West Bank on Friday, killing them and injuring others in what authorities termed a terrorist attack.

The driver, identified as Ala Qabha, 26, was also injured in the attack. Recently released from prison on a 17-month sentence for security-related crimes, Qabha was captured as he fled the scene.

The assault occurred at a military observation post near Mevo Dotan, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank.

Palestini militant groups in the Middle East praised the attack. Hamas, which controls the Gaza government, said it "proves our people's readiness to continue the Jerusalem intifada." The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group said it "commends" the attack and "calls for further attacks against the Zionist occupation," the Times of Israel reported on Friday.
