    Over the past 24 hours, several more attacks have taken place on the West Bank against the backdrop of Israel's "Operation Guardian of the Walls" in the Gaza Strip.
    The Sheikh Jarrah attack came just hours after Palestinian terrorists opened fire at an Israeli vehicle outside the Palestinian town of Bani Na'im on the southern West Bank. One bullet hit the vehicle and the driver fled to the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba. No injuries were reported in the incident.
    On Saturday night, a Palestinian vehicle tried to ram soldiers at an IDF checkpoint south of Hebron. The troops opened fire at the car, killing the driver. Another passenger managed to escape.
