A Palestinian man who launched an attack on police and a security guard at the entrance to Ma'aleh Adumim was shot and seriously injured Wednesday.

The suspect rammed his vehicle into a police car at the entrance to the town, before running towards private security guards and trying to snatch one of their handguns, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.



"In response, the guard opened fire, striking the man," Rosenfeld added. The attacker, aged 30, was rushed to the Hadassah Ein-Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious condition.

Police are investigating the incident.
