Occupied Jerusalem: A motorist has rammed a car into a policeman and two soldiers, wounding all three in a suspected attack in 1948 areas where Israel established its state.

Police say they are investigating Sunday morning’s incident in the city of Acre.

In security footage, a speeding jeep is seen streaking through a junction where a uniformed paramilitary man is crossing, striking him and sending him flying into the air. In subsequent footage, the same jeep is seen crashing into another car.

Police say a bystander opened fire at the vehicle and wounded the driver, who was apprehended.

Since 2015, more than 260 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and Palestinians have killed over 50 Israelis.
