The new intifada continues near Hebron and Gilboa
A Palestinian motorist attempted to ram his vehicle into IDF soldiers conducting security checks at the Hilhul Junction near Hebron on Friday.
The assailant was shot and killed at the scene. During searches, a knife was found on the person of the terrorist.
No Israelis were wounded in the incident.
Shortly beforehand, a Palestinian gunman fired shots toward Israeli security forces at the Gilboa (Jamale) crossing between the northern West Bank and Israel on Friday.
The attacker approached the checkpoint and fired the shots from several dozen meters away, using a long-barreled fire arm.
In response, Defense Ministry security personnel opened fire toward the gunman.
According to the IDF, the gunman then fled the scene and a Palestinian truck picked him up and drove away back toward Palestinian Authority territory.
While the gunman's condition was unknown, the Defense Ministry added that one of its personnel who fired at the terrorist saw that he had been hit.
If the terrorist dies, he'll deserve it.
