Three Border Police officers were lightly wounded in a vehicular attack outside the Palestinian town of Beit Ummar, northwest of Hebron, on Sunday afternoon. Shortly beforehand, a 5-year-old boy was lightly wounded from window fragments from a stone-throwing incident at a T-intersection nearby Maaleh Amos, also in Gush Etzion.
The wounded police officers, all in their 30s, were injured in their lower bodies, and they were taken to Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek Medical Center after being treated at the scene by Magen David Adom. The terrorist, 23-year-old Khaled Ikhalil from Beit Ummar, was shot dead by other Border Police officers present.
The attack took place nearby the scene of a shooting attack that took place on Saturday evening on Highway 60. Nobody was injured in that attack.
This is the fifth terrorist attack in the West Bank since Friday evening.
The wounded child was taken to Hadassah Medical Center in the capital. The stone-throwing took place outside the Arab town of Tekoa.
