A terrorist attack took place this morning, a short while ago, near Kiryat Arba.
Two Arab terrorists – armed with a gun and rifle – attempted to ram their vehicle into a group of people waiting at a hitchhiking area near the Elias junction at the entrance to Kiryat Arba.
The two assailants were shot and neutralized by IDF soldiers in the area.
One person was hurt in the incident.
Update: Upon searching the terrorists’ vehicle, police found weapons in it. It appeared that the terrorists had planned on opening fire on the Israeli hitchhikers after ramming into them. Thankfully, the security forces neutralized the attackers in time to prevent any further action.
