(JTA) – A car-ramming outside the West Bank settlement near Hebron lightly injured an Israeli husband and wife in an apparent terror attack on Friday.
The assailant, a Palestinian woman, was shot dead by a soldier at the scene.
The couple, in their 50s, had pulled over to the side of the road near a bus stop near Kiryat Arba when the assailant’s car hit theirs at a high speed. The couple was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
The incident comes following a months-long wave of hundreds of terror attacks in Israel and the West Bank. Thirty-three Israelis and four foreign nationals have been killed in the attacks, as well as some 200 Palestinians, including many attackers. Recently the pace of the attacks has slowed considerably.
