Seven policemen were injured in a ramming attack at a police checkpoint in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah on Sunday.The driver of the vehicle, a resident of east Jerusalem, was quickly shot and killed by an officer after the attack. One officer was lightly injured by friendly fire. Haaretz reported that she had been shot in the leg. Two officers were evacuated from the scene in moderate condition.

An additional ramming attack was thwarted by IDF  soldiers positioned near the Palestinian town of Huwara in the West Bank on Monday morning.

While reports initially indicated that one person had been injured in the attack, the IDF later confirmed that there were no injuries . The assailant was neutralized at the scene.

The suspected vehicle began accelerating toward IDF troops positioned in the area south of the Palestinian city of Nablus, crashing into an IDF patrol vehicle. The suspect was arrested and taken for interrogation. 

Multiple fires broke out in different areas of the West Bank on Sunday and Monday, caused by terrorist activity, the Fire and Rescue Services reported. Fires broke out in 97 different areas in the West Bank, 32 of which were caused by hostile activity that included the use of Molotov cocktails, riots, burning tires and intentional arson.     Most fires broke out near main roads and adjacent to populated towns and military bases.Among the dozens of incidents, two were classified as significant, regarding their scope and the threat imposed on civilians. The first took place near the Jewish settlement of Gvaot Shama, where fire teams were eventually able to limit the spread of the fire and prevent it from reaching the settlement’s residential area.One fire and rescue team making its way to the scene was assaulted by suspects who threw a Molotov cocktail toward it. The second serious fire broke out on the outskirts of city of Beitar Illit, endangering several houses. There too, fire teams were able to contain the fire and prevent its spread.

An attempted shooting attack took place near the Bani Naim Junction in the Judea council Sunday, according to the IDF. No injuries were reported.
