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.

Original source


A suspected car-ramming attack wounded three Israeli soldiers, one of them seriously, northwest of Ramallah in the West Bank on Tuesday.

According to a preliminary investigation, a vehicle rammed into the three, who were manning the Ein Arik roadblock, near the settlement of Dolev. The driver was shot and killed at the scene.

A helicopter evacuated the seriously wounded soldier to Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, where doctors said his life was in danger.

The two other victims were lightly wounded and evacuated for medical care at Jerusalem's Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the suspected assailant as Ahmed Riyad Shehada, 36, from Beitunia in the West Bank.

On Monday, an ultra-Orthodox man in his sixties was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem's Old City.
