Three Israeli occupation soldiers were wounded on Tuesday in a car-ramming operation northwest of Ramallah.

Israeli media reported that the one of the soldiers was seriously injured.

"According to a preliminary investigation, a vehicle rammed into the three, who were manning the Ein Arik roadblock. The driver was shot and killed at the scene," Haaretz said.

"A helicopter evacuated the seriously wounded soldier to Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, where doctors said his life was in danger," the Israeli daily reported, adding that the two other soldiers were lightly wounded.

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

The occupied territories have been, since October 1, rocked by a wave of operations against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds.

Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.

However the occupation forces have been brutally attacking the Palestinians under the pretext of staging stabbing attacks.

The Palestinian operations since the start of October have killed 28 Israelis, while the Israeli occupation forces killed more than 200 Palestinians.
