Israel: Three family members seriously wounded in bomb attack

Three Jewish hikers have been seriously wounded by a bomb at a popular water spring near Dolev. The terror attack happened around 10:15 AM on Friday. The IDF is examining if a grenade was thrown at them, or if a bomb had been left at the spring.

Paramedics treated three seriously wounded people: a man, age 46 in moderate condition, who is now stable and conscious; his son, a teenage boy, age 19, seriously wounded with stomach and body wounds. He is unconscious and on a respirator.

His daughter, age 16, is in critical condition and undergoing resuscitation efforts in the field.

An IDF 669 medivac helicopter was sent to their location and evacuated the wounded men to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital. The young woman is being treated on site, in an attempt to stabilize her.

Arab sources report that IDF forces are in pursuit of the vehicle that threw the bomb at the hikers. Residents of Dolev report hearing the explosion.

The Dolev area is east of Modi’in.

The attack happened near the Ein Buvin spring, which was renamed to Ein Dani, in memory of Dani Gonen, who was murdered there by Arab terrorists in 2015.
