A car-ramming attack and a stabbing wounded five Israelis in the West Bank Sunday while the two alleged assailants were shot, the Israeli authorities said.

In the first incident, a Palestinian rammed a group of Israelis with a car at a junction, wounding four of them, and was then killed by security forces, police said.

The alleged attacker was said to have driven the car into an area south of Nablus where Israelis typically gather to hitch rides. A checkpoint is located nearby and Israeli border police opened fire.

Israeli public radio described two of the wounded as in a serious condition.

Later, a Palestinian woman stabbed a security guard near a West Bank settlement and was shot, the Israeli police and army said.

The incident occurred at the entrance to the Beitar Illit settlement south of Al-Quds (Jerusalem). The fate of the woman was not immediately clear.

A wave of knife, gun and car attacks have hit the Israeli Defense Forces since the start of October.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
