Security forces acted swiftly in neutralizing the terrorist.
The terrorist was shot by security forces at the scene. MDA emergency responders provided initial medical treatment to the subdued terrorist. His condition was not immediately known.
The attack ccame one day after an attempted car ramming occurred when a Palestinian woman drove her vehicle toward Border Police and then charged officers on foot with a knife.
The unidentified Palestinian woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon at the Kalandia Crossing checkpoint, separating Jerusalem from Ramallah.
According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the attempted attack took place shortly after 2 p.m., when the suspect drove her car in the wrong direction toward police guarding the checkpoint.
“The officers fired warning shots in the air, and the female terrorist exited her vehicle with a knife and charged them screaming ‘Allahu Akbar!,’” said Rosenfeld. “She was disarmed and arrested at the scene without being injured, and the area was temporary closed off.” An investigation has been opened, he said.
