A 40-year-old man was lightly injured in an alleged attempted attack on Tuesday morning at Gush Etzion Junction in the West Bank according to reports by MDA. Paramedics administered care at the scene for an injury to his hand and evacuated the man to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem.
The assailant was shot and killed by security forces at the scene.
Gush Etzion Junction has been the site of multiple stabbing and shooting attacks in the last few weeks.
Last week, a Palestinian attacker stabbed and killed Hadar Buchris, 21, as she stood at a bus stop at the Gush Etzion junction in the West Bank.
An additional three people were murdered and seven were injured in an attack at the Gush Etzion Junction on November 19.
Ezra Schwartz, an 18-year old American on a gap year in an Israeli yeshiva and Palestinian Shadi Arafeh, 24, of Hebron, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Yaakov Don, 49, a teacher and father of four who lived in the nearby Alon Shvut settlement was evacuated to Hadassah- University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Karem in serious condition and was pronounced dead upon his arrival in the hospital.
The United States harshly condemned the attack.
