Israelis injured in West Bank attack, suspected assailant killed

Three Israelis were injured on Saturday in the occupied West Bank in a ramming attack whose alleged perpetrator was killed by soldiers, a new episode of violence after a relative calm. This new violence puts an end to a relative pause in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, since the beginning of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan ten days ago.

The Israeli army said a “terrorist” carried out a vehicular attack near Beit Ummar in the southern West Bank before being neutralized. A spokesperson later confirmed that he had died.

88 Palestinians killed since the beginning of the year

According to Magen David Adom, the Israeli equivalent of the Red Cross, three Israelis were injured, one seriously. In a statement, the Palestinian Authority identified the slain man as Mohammed Baradyah, a 23-year-old Palestinian.

Since the beginning of the year, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed the lives of at least 88 Palestinians (including combatants and civilians, including minors), an Israeli Arab, 14 other Israelis (including members of the Israeli forces and civilians) and a Ukrainian, according to a tally from official Israeli and Palestinian sources.
