A vehicle-ramming attack was thwarted this morning at 11:00 AM near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron by an IDF force. The terrorist, a 30-year-old man from Beit Ummar, was driving a tractor and attempted to ram IDF soldiers manning a roadblock. The soldiers fired at the driver and eliminated him.
“Moments ago, an attempted car ramming attack was thwarted in Hebron. A terrorist attempted to run over IDF troops located at the site with his vehicle. In response, the troops fired towards the terrorist, killing him. No IDF injuries reported,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.

Yesterday, along the Gaza border, thousands rioted, burned tires and attempted to sabotage the security infrastructure. It was also reported that a suspect was detected crossing the border fence and planting a grenade near the fence. In another incident, fire was opened towards an IDF vehicle. Additionally, firefighters took care of fires erupted at 10 locations adjacent to the border, near Israeli communities, which were ignited by flaming kites sent from Gaza.
Palestinian media reported 40 Gazans injured and one killed from IDF fire. In addition, the reports claim that dozens suffered from smoke-inhaling symptoms. There were no Israeli casualties. Palestinians also reported that the Gazan killed was Razan al-Najar, a 22-year-old female, who was reportedly injured from IDF sniper fire and died on the way to the hospital.
