A Palestinian woman drove her car onto the pavement Wednesday afternoon at the Gush Etzion junction, south of Jerusalem, in an attempt to run over a group of a group of civilians and soldiers who were standing at a bus stop. The car was stopped by the yellow posts in front of the station. No Israeli casualties were reported.
The female terrorist was shot and neutralized. According to the IDF spokesman, she was transported by the army to the hospital after being treated by the IDF medical corps.
Medics and Magen David Adom paramedics provided medical treatment to a pregnant woman after she suffered a panic attack, but she did not suffer any physical injuries. She was then transported to the hospital.
Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council, Shlomo Ne’eman, praised the IDF soldiers who neutralized the terrorist and called upon the government to increase building in Judea and Samaria as a response to the terrorists. “We call on the government to act against the terrorists which to us means build, build and build. All those who wish to see red among Israeli residents, will contemplate more red roofs, more construction, more settlement. This is what they fear from us, this is what they will get and this is how the government of Israel should respond”.
This is the second car-ramming attack in Judea and Samaria since the order to install yellow plots to protect bus stations. Towards the end of January, a similar attack occurred near the community of Kokhav Ya’akov, north of Jerusalem.
