BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian civilian was evacuated for critical injuries after his car hit an Israeli military vehicle, lightly injuring at least three Israeli soldiers at the entrance to the illegal Israeli settlement of Neve Daniel in the southern occupied West Bank southwest of Jerusalem.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that a Palestinian driving in an Israeli-plated vehicle crashed into an Israeli military vehicle, causing the latter to flip over, and that the army was initially investigating the incident as a possible deliberate attack.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri said in a statement that investigations were ongoing to confirm whether the incident was a "terrorist attack."

The lightly wounded Israelis did not require medical treatment, while the Palestinian sustained critical injuries and was evacuated for treatment, al-Samri added.

Some Israeli media outlets reported that a fourth Israeli soldier was also injured in the incident.
