Palestinian terrorists continue attacks over weekend

Palestinian terrorists continue to attack Israeli civilians and soldiers at any given opportunity.

Palestinian terrorists committed several terror attacks throughout Judea and Samaria over the weekend.

On Saturday night, a Palestinian terrorist fired at an Israeli vehicle near the community of Karmei Tsur, in the Hebron area. No one was wounded in the attack.

The IDF found bullet cases at the scene of the attack, and has launched an investigation into the incident.

One of the car passengers was Ruthi Gillis, whose husband Dr. Shmuel Gillis was murdered in a Palestinian shooting attack in 2001. She said she saw the terrorist stand at the side of the road and point a weapon at them.

Earlier on Saturday morning, a Palestinian terrorist attempted to run over IDF soldiers manning a checkpoint near the community of Ofra. The soldiers responded by firing at the vehicle, after which the terrorist got out of his car and tried to stab them. They shot and wounded him.

No Israelis were wounded in the incident.

The terrorist, in his 30s, was evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem in serious condition.

On Friday afternoon, IDF soldiers arrested a Palestinian who was carrying a hidden knife outside the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The suspect admitted during his initial questioning that he intended to carry out a terror attack.

These incidents were the latest in a long series of Palestinian terror attacks which have plagued Israelis over the course of more than a year, claiming the lives of 41 victims and wounding over 550.
