Monday, 6 December 2021 | A security guard was seriously wounded on Monday in a suspected ramming attack at the Te’enim checkpoint to the West Bank [Judea and Samaria].
A 16-year-old Palestinian who carried out the attack was shot and later died in [the] hospital.
According to the Defense Ministry, the Palestinian youth drove at [a] high speed into the checkpoint from the West Bank entrance and rammed his car into the guard post, seriously injuring a 34-year-old security guard on duty.
Guards opened fire on the car, injuring the suspected terrorist, who was then taken to [the] hospital, where he died from his wounds.
“This is a serious incident,” Defense Ministry Director General Amir Eshel said. “The guards at the checkpoint responded quickly and ended the attack within seconds,” he said.
The car-ramming followed what appears to be an uptick in terror attacks carried out by [lone] wolf attackers over the past few weeks, causing security officials concern.
On Saturday, a resident of the West Bank stabbed a Haredi [ultra-Orthodox] man outside the Damascus Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem and attempted to stab police officers on the scene. He was shot and killed on site.
