"A short while ago, a terrorist arrived at a hitch-hiking post next to a roadblock at Tapuah [junction], accelerated his vehicle and hit a number of civilians who were standing there," Border Police said.

Magen David Adom said two men, 22, were moderately to seriously wounded. A third man, 23, was moderately wounded and a pregnant woman was lightly wounded.

The wounded were taken to  Rabin Medical Center's Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva. They are from Petah Tikiva, Nof Ayalon, Talmon and Yitzhar.

A young Israeli woman was also lightly injured by shards of glass.

A volunteer for United Hatzalah who was passing by the junction, Yaakov Selah, said he pulled his car over when he saw security forces racing to the scene of the attack so that he could help the wounded.

MDA paramedics Gil Bismuth and Avigail Mamliya said that when they arrived they found "the victims lying on the ground and fully conscious, but suffering from wounds to their extremities. The attacker's car, with the [dead] terrorist inside, was still nearby."

The attack was the first of three to target Israelis in the West Bank on Sunday.

Around 11:00 AM, a civilian security guard shot a female Palestinian assailant who stabbed and lightly wounded him, as he stood at his post, just outside the Betar Illit settlement, which is located a short distance away from Jerusalem.

At approximately 1:30 p.m., a 48-year-old man was stabbed and seriously wounded by two assailants while shopping outside the Palestinian village of Nabi Ilyas. The suspects in that attack remained at large.
