Car-ramming attack outside Jerusalem

Another car-ramming attack occurred outside the community of Adam, located northeast of Jerusalem, approximately a week after a similar attack outside the nearby community of Kochav Yaakov. 

A Palestinian woman attempted to commit a vehicular attack just outside the community of Adam, a few kilometers northeast of Jerusalem, as she drove into a police vehicle at the entrance of the community.

“I saw a private vehicle that had rammed into a police vehicle at the gate of the community,” said EMT Michael Cohen of United Hatzalah, an emergency medical response organization.

Three civilians along with the attacker were injured and are currently receiving medical treatment.

“The attacker injured three civilians who have been evacuated to a hospital to receive medical treatment,” an IDF spokesperson said in a statement. “The assailant is being treated and questioned at the scene.”

According to Cohen, the three victims sustained nothing more than light injuries.

“I treated three people at the scene who all suffered from only light injuries, thankfully,” Cohen added.

The most recent attempted car-ramming attack occurred approximately a week ago, not too far away from Adam, outside the community of Kochav Yaakov. There were no injuries in the attack.
