BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was shot and injured after allegedly committing a suspected car attack that injured at least four Israelis off route 60 near the illegal Israeli settlement bloc of Gush Etzion and Beit Ummar village in the southern occupied West Bank, an Israeli army spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said "reports are initial" but that she could confirm that "a Palestinian ran over four Israelis in an attack" and that Israeli forces responded by "firing at the assailant."

The spokesperson said all five of the injured have been evacuated to the hospital.

Israeli news website Haaretz has reported that the four injured Israelis are Israeli soldiers, however the Israeli army spokesperson said she could not confirm that detail.

On Tuesday, a Palestinian man was shot and killed after allegedly ramming his car into a group of Israelis near the same area, injuring two Israelis, Israeli police said at the time.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said there had been a "terrorist attack" near the Gush Etzion junction and the area was closed off after Israeli security and police arrived on the scene.

Netanyahu is in Germany to restore calm between the Israelis and Palestinians. He needs to be in Israel to restore calm not in Germany. He probably over there try to get the Germans on his side by telling the world the Palestinians are behind the Holocaust. What a morron.
