Assessment: Earlier this week, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad reportedly made a pact to step up terrorist attacks against Israel, especially in Jerusalem and the West Bank …

The Israeli military said Tuesday it thwarted a car ramming attempt by a Palestinian terrorist into a military checkpoint in the West Bank in the latest wave of attacks targeting Israelis.

According to an initial report, the car attacker attempted to ram into a manned military post outside the Mevo Dotan settlement, north of Jenin in the West Bank. The Israeli soldiers at the military post opened fire at the vehicle as the driver accelerated towards them and “neutralized” him, the Israeli army stated.

The assailant’s vehicle then collided with a military jeep that was parked near the post, setting both on fire. There were no serious injuries reported.

Back in March 2018, two Israel Defense Forces soldiers were killed and two others injured in a car ramming attack by a Palestinian terrorist near the Mevo Dotan settlement.

Tuesday’s incident is the latest in a series of eight Palestinian terrorist attacks targeting Israelis over the past month in Jerusalem and around the West Bank using knives, guns, and vehicles.
