One person has been injured in a car ramming attack in Israel. 

The incident took place at the Gush Etzion junction in the West Bank, south of Jerusalem. 

The Jerusalem Post reports that the victim was an Israeli civilian in his 60s, and was taken to the city's Shaare Zedek Medical Centre for treatment.

Reports suggest that the attacker has been shot and neutralised by soldiers with the Israel Defense Forces. The road between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion has been closed off in both directions.
