Israeli border police foiled two attempted ramming attacks against officers in Area C of the West Bank during enforcement operations on Monday morning.

Police shot and killed a Palestinian suspect who attempted to run over an officer during a raid to the South Hebron Hills village of Idna to halt illegal copper burning activity. The officer shot and killed the Palestinian suspect.

In the village of Jiftlik in the Jordan Valley, a Palestinian man tried to run over officers who were protecting the Civil Administration as it demolished illegal structures. Police arrested the Palestinian driver.

Separately, four Palestinians were injured in the village of Nabi Saleh during clashes with the IDF, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

According to the NGO Yesh Din, Israelis vandalized 30 vehicles in the Palestinian village of Beitin. Security cameras documented three people puncturing the tires of a car. Messages were also spray pained such as, “We don’t sleep when blood is shed.”
