IDF medics evacuated the approximately 20-year-old victim to the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva.

Security forces cordoned off traffic between Tapuah Junction and Yitzhar Junction in light of the incident.

The Huwara checkpoint has been a flashpoint site for attacks in recent months.

Most recently, on Saturday a Palestinian terrorist carried out a car-ramming attack on IDF troops manning a checkpoint near Hawara. The attacker was shot dead by soldiers. One soldier was lightly wounded in the leg in the attack.
