IDF source: Incident yesterday in which a van rammed into 3 soldiers was a hit and run, Not attack

An Israeli security source said Thursday that an initial investigation into what was believed to be a vehicular terror attack Wednesday night in Gush Etzion was actually a hit and run.
This direction is based on the possibility that the suspects may not fit the profile of terrorists, even ones who could act on their own, separate from an organization.

Hamam Masalmeh, the driver of a large commercial vehicle that rammed into three IDF soldiers standing near a pillbox by al-Arroub in the West Bank, turned himself in to Israeli custody. Both he and another suspected arrested earlier were questioned.

Speaking to AFP, Masalmeh's uncle Omar said this was an accident, and that his nephew lost control of his car.

The Shin Bet said Engineering troops from Battalion 603 arrested another suspect, believed to have aided Masalmeh. Overnight, several Palestinians were arrested near al-Arrou
