A car ramming attack occurred Tuesday afternoon on Route 60 near Beit Einun in the Hebron area of the West Bank. Two soldiers, a male soldier and a female soldier, were slightly injured by the terrorist’s vehicle. The 29-year-old terrorist was eliminated by security forces.

The initial investigation revealed that the Palestinian terrorist sped toward the IDF soldiers who were stationed at the entrance to Beit Einun with his car. Magen David Adom paramedics were rushed to the scene and treated the two soldiers before transporting them to a Jerusalem hospital.

“When we arrived at the scene, we saw two young people around the age of 20 fully conscious and suffering from wounds to the lower limbs and face after they were hit by the car,” stated MDA paramedic Tzachi Sipor.

On Friday morning, two Israeli police officers were murdered in a shooting attack that took place in Jerusalem’s Old City. The terrorists shot the two police officers who were standing at the Lion’s Gate near the Temple Mount. The terrorists then ran into the Temple Mount, where they were eliminated by Israeli security forces. In light of the terror attack, the holy site was closed down until Sunday afternoon.
