Seven Border Police officers were wounded Sunday afternoon in a car-ramming attack in the flashpoint East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
The attacker was shot dead at the scene.
Two of the officers were moderately hurt while the rest sustained minor injuries. All were taken to hospitals in the capital. One of the officers was hit by friendly fire.
Skirmishes erupted between police and Arab civilians at the scene and officers fired two stun grenades. Police have closed the scene and were not letting civilians come near.
Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai later arrived at the scene of the attack.
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.
