A Palestinian car-ramming attack wounded two Israelis near the Israeli settlement of Elazar (West Bank) on Friday, August 16. Israeli police reportedly shot the assailant dead around the scene of the attack.
Similar Palestinian car-ramming attacks targeting Israelis are possible in the West Bank over the near term.
Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation. Due to the underlying terrorist threat, travelers in Israel and the West Bank are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
