Ramming attacks thwarted in Hevron and the Jordan Valley — Muslim terrorist shot and eliminated
A Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated after attempting to ram his car into Border Police officers outside the city of Hevron on Tuesday morning.
The terrorist has been identified as 27-year-old Omar Hassan Awadah, from the Arab village of Idna, near Hevron.
In a separate attack, a Muslim terrorist accelerated his car toward a group of Border Police officers in the northern Jordan Valley. As a part of the arrest procedure, the troops fired warning shots into the air. The terrorist stopped and was arrested.
The police said both attempted terror attacks were being investigated.
Security forces continue their operational and intelligence efforts to locate the Muslim terrorists who carried out a drive-by shooting attack near to the Ofra Junction in the Binyamin area on Sunday.
The IDF said the forces are investing most of their search efforts in the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council, with enhanced security checks being conducted at the councils’ entries and exits.
