An Arab terrorist attempted to ram his vehicle into a group of Israelis standing at a hitchhiker’s bus stop on Wednesday evening near a gas station in Kokhav Ya’akov in the Binyamin region, before being shot and eliminated by people present at the scene.
Upon searching the vehicle, a knife was found in the driver’s possession, indicating that he may have intended to carry out a double terror attack.
Earlier in the day, a number of Molotov Cocktails were hurled by Arab terrorists at Kibbutz Migdal Oz in the Gush Etzion region.
Three firefighting service teams were called to the scene to extinguish the flames. No one was injured in the attack.
In the morning, police units scoured the Jerusalem area in pursuit of an Arab terrorist who smashed his vehicle through Hizma checkpoint in the city as security forces were carrying out security checks.
According to security forces, the security personnel stationed at the checkpoint began the process of engagement and attempted to stop the terrorist, who managed to flee the scene.
