Two Israeli siblings, Noam and Nahum Navi, aged 20 and 18, were injured in a ram attack near the village of Elazar on Friday afternoon in the Gush Ezion region of the West Bank.

Police released dramatic video footage of the attack, which saw a white car with an Israeli license plate speeding along Route 60, then diverting from the road to hit a sister and brother who were standing at the bus stop.

Then the car turned sideways and turned, landing in the back of the bus stop.

A police officer caught the assault on a camera and, while examining the driver, who was attempting to leave the vehicle, shot and killed him, according to police who released a short video of the attack.

A Palestinian driver, Alla Hader al-Hraimi, 26 years old from Bethlehem, had spent time in prison between 2014 and 2015 for unspecified acts of violence.

Naum was transported from Magen by David Adom to Hadas University Medical Center, Ein Karem, with a head injury; underwent surgery and is in serious condition. Noam was taken to Sha & amp; Zedek Hospital and is in moderate condition. The family, who live in the village of Elazar, asked the public to ask for the reunion of both siblings.

Friday's attack was the third in 10 days. On Thursday, an Israeli policeman was slightly injured to moderately wounded by a Palestinian stabbing in the Old City of Jerusalem.

On August 7, an Israeli teenager, 18-year-old Dvir Sorek, was stabbed to death by Palestinians near the West Bank settlement of Migdal Oz, near the scene of Friday's attack.

The YESHA Council called on the IDF and the Israeli security forces to do their utmost to restore security in the region.

The head of the Gush Ezion Regional Council, Shlomo Neeman, spoke of the lack of deterrence and called on the government to apply sovereignty to Gush Ezion in response to the attacks.

"Unfortunately, there is a lack of deterrent that affects in particular the residents of Gush Ezion and Judea and Samaria as a whole," said Naaman.

"We ask for government action that will bring an end to this uncertainty about the future of Judea and Samaria. We call for the establishment of sovereignty. The answer is to continue to build and grow in Judea and Samaria, ”he continued.

"We tell the terrorists – you have no chance and you have no future," Naeman said. He also wished for a speedy recovery of the victims.

Blue and White Party chief Benny Ganz has accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the attack, saying his inability to hold strong against Hamas in Gaza has prompted terrorists to attack the West Bank's Israelis.

Netanyahu's cabinet, made up of ministers such as Bezalel Smotrich and Miri Regev, "can't handle this kind of terror," Gantz said.

He vowed that if he was elected prime minister, he would create a really strong cabinet that would restore deterrence and protect Israeli citizens.

On Friday afternoon, settlers held a small demonstration near the scene of the assault, demanding security.
