IDF soldiers opened fire on a suspected Palestinian attacker and his vehicle on Tuesday after the suspect attempted to carry out a ramming attack near the West Bank settlement of Halamish.

According to the IDF, two Palestinians in the vehicle were neutralized and treated at the scene. No civilians were injured in the incident.

According to ZAKA, one of the suspects, 20, was subsequently rushed to Beilinson Hospital and is in critical condition.

Halamish was the scene of a gruesome, triple murder terror attack, in July, in which three members of the same family were stabbed to death by a Palestinian assailant.
