Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers reportedly shot and killed a Palestinian man following a suspected car ramming attack that took place on Friday, May 29, near the Israeli settlement of Halamish (West Bank). No IDF casualties were reported.
Tensions in the occupied Palestinian territories have risen in recent weeks, with several attempted stabbings and car rammings in the West Bank and Israel, as Israel moves forward with plans to annex 30 percent of the Jordan Valley in July. Further attacks and protests in the West Bank, Israel, and around the Gaza Strip are likely while such planning continues.
Individuals in the West Bank are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
