A terrorist attempted Tuesday to run over IDF soldiers near the West Bank settlement of Halamish. The terrorist was moderately injured by the soldiers, who opened fire in order to neutralize him. A Palestinian woman was also injured but the extent of her injuries was not immediately known. The woman was evacuated to a hospital by the Palestine Red Crescent Society. No Israelis were injured in the attempted terror attack.

Earlier this month, the findings of the IDF investigation into the deadly Halamish terror attack in which three family members were reported were released. The report indicates that there was a series of serious operational failures that enabled the terrorist to enter the settlement and carry out the murderous act.

The findings of the investigation, which was conducted in cooperation with the Binyamin Regional Council’s security department and Halamish’s civilian security establishment, was presented to IDF Central Command head Maj.-Gen. Roni Numa. Among other things, the probe uncovered that the military unit stationed in the area failed to carry out its directives. This discovery was especially disturbing given the fact that alert level in the region was high due to the Temple Mount terror attack, which occurred just a few days earlier.
