Two shooting attacks occurred on Saturday during which an army guard post near Ramallah and a private vehicle close to Ateret were attacked. A combined IDF and  Border Police Anti-Terrorism Unit and Shin Bet effort lead Israeli forces to the suspected shooter.

The suspected shooter, Aamer Ahmed Halil from Nabi Salih, resisted arrest and drew a home-made weapon at the security forces. Israeli security neutralized him and arrested another man who was with him suffering no casualties.
