Palestinian shot dead after alleged West Bank attack

One person was lightly-to-moderately wounded on Wednesday after being hit by a auto in a terror attack at the Gush Etzion Junction on Route 60 in the West Bank.

A spokesperson for Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek Medical Center said the Palestinian assailant was brought to the hospital in critical condition after receiving treatment on the scene by military medics.

Yossi Hess, a senior EMT, said that when he "arrived at the scene, I saw one person suffering from a head wound".

The incident occurred at a major junction near the Gush Etzion bloc of Israeli settlements in the West Bank outside Jerusalem.

A man of about 60, attacked by a Palestinian terrorist in Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, is being treated at a Jerusalem hospital.

Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, the Israeli authorities say.

A wave of street attacks by Palestinians in Israel, Jerusalem and the Israeli-occupied West Bank since October 2015 has killed 37 Israelis, two American tourists and a British student.

The spate of Palestinian attacks that began in October 2015 was dubbed the "lone wolf" intifada, as numerous attacks were carried out by individuals who were not connected to any terror group.
