Three Israelis, two identified as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers and one a Border Police officer, were lightly injured in a suspected car-ramming attack in the northern city of Acre on Sunday.

The driver of the vehicle was shot and seriously wounded in attempts to subdue him.

Palestinian incitement in ‘car intifada’ against Israelis used in their media.

Police said that the background of the incident remains unknown, but that they were investigating the possibility that the incident was nationalistically motivated.

The driver hit the first victim outside the Acre city market, before continuing driving towards the city’s train station where he hit the other two victims.

CCTV footage of one of the incidents shows a vehicle travelling at moderate speed slamming into a soldier who is crossing the road as it turns into a parking lot.
