Earlier this morning, an Arab-Israeli driver ran over and lightly-to-moderately wounded two soldiers, a border policeman and a pedestrian in the northern Israeli city of Acre, Israeli police said. After an initial investigation, the police confirmed that the driver’s intention was nationalistic and therefore classified as a terror attack.
The terrorist was able to crash his car into Israelis at 2 separate locations before being neutralized. The Arab-Israeli driver, 51 from northern Israel, ran over a soldier near the city market, before proceeding toward the train station where he plowed his vehicle into more victims, according to Ynet News.
According to one report, the wounded border policeman shot at the terrorist and managed to neutralize him. Further investigations by Israeli security personnel is underway and more information will likely be revealed as the investigation continues.
