Halhul saw a similar car ramming attack this Wednesday, when an Israeli police officer shot dead a driver after another officer was injured.
On Friday, two Jewish men, aged 16 and 19, were shot in Hebron at the holy site of Cave of the Patriarchs and another one, an IDF soldier, also shot nearby in a separate drive-by attack. This led to a blockade of Hebron on Saturday by Israeli forces while they searched for the assailants.

Also on Friday, a 23-year-old Palestinian man was reportedly shot and killed and nine others wounded by Israeli forces during clashes in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. In Northern Gaza, a Palestinian teenager was wounded in clashes. In Bethlehem, a Christian Palestinian was severely wounded by IDF soldiers during a violent protest.
In the recent tide of violence and protests, which began one month ago, 71 Palestinians have been killed, mainly during violent protests, along with 11 Israelis, mostly stabbings victims.
Earlier, Reuters reported that a clothing shop dubbed “Hitler 2” in Gaza displayed mannequins holding knifes and dressed in T-shirts with “Stab!” written across the chest, while an Israeli news website, popular among religious Jews, hosted a video game “in which children were urged to ‘neutralize’ attackers dressed as Arabs.”
