Israeli injured in suspected West Bank ram car, driver shot dead

An Israeli security guard was seriously injured in an alleged ram car attack at a West Bank checkpoint early Monday morning, security officials said. The driver of the vehicle was shot and “neutralized”.

The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. at the Te’enim checkpoint near the West Bank town of Tulkarm. The guard was struck by a vehicle coming from the Palestinian side, officials said.

Security forces at the checkpoint fired and “neutralized” the driver, officials said. Hebrew media reported that he was killed.

Doctors from Magen David Adom said the guard, 34, was in serious but stable condition with head and chest injuries and was conscious. He was evacuated to Tel Hashomer hospital near Tel Aviv.

The incident comes just over a day after two border police officers gunned down a Palestinian assailant after stabbing a Jewish civilian in a suspected terror attack near Jerusalem’s Old City.

Police were questioned after video of the incident showed them firing several shots at the assailant while he was already lying on the ground. Police video of the entire incident that was released later showed that officers did not immediately shoot the assailant, but did so only after he pounced on them Many times.

The two, who received strong support from the prime minister, police chief and other senior officials, say they feared he was still dangerous when they shot him.
