The officers noticed the terrorist and neutralized him immediately by shooting him. 40 minutes later, 2 terrorists a male and a female attempted to run over Israelis who were waiting at a bus stop near Kiryat Arba. The terrorists were neutralized.

This comes less than a day after the two allies signed the largest military aid deal in US history. On Thursday, a senior official with the Jerusalem municipality told Channel 2 News that the city intends to "unfreeze" these construction plans, which have been awaiting approval for a long time, and carry them out one by one until the new administration at the White House takes office.
