In addition, IDF forces entered the home of the terrorist who shot at soldiers from a travelling vehicle near Ramallah on Wednesday evening. 


The shooting attack took place approximately one hour after another terrorist attempted to ram his car into a number of pedestrians waiting at a bus stop Kokhav Ya’akov, apparently intent on stabbing them after running them over.
