While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Israeli border police hurt in car ramming

Original source


Four border police were slightly injured on Saturday in a suspected car ramming attack outside a military base near Ma'ale Adumim, east of Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Magen David Adom emergency medical services were dispatched to the scene, and said that three Israeli soaldiers, aged 21, 29, and 43, and a fourth border police officer were transported to hospital with light injuries.

Israeli police report that that during routine operations in the area, officers identified two Palestinians crossing the security fence and approaching a vehicle waiting on the Israeli side.

A border police team was dispatched to the scene and approached the vehicle, which had been caught in a traffic jam, on foot.

The suspects attempted to flee the scene, hitting a civilian car before attempting to ram their vehicle into the police officers.

The suspects continued driving after shots had been fired, and slammed into the vehicle of a second police team blocking the road.

The suspects were arrested and taken into police custody.
