An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier and one policeman were wounded on Wednesday, September 2, in a suspected vehicle-ramming attack near the Tapu'ah Junction (West Bank), south of Nablus. The incident reportedly occurred when a car was driven at speed toward a group of IDF personnel. The driver was wounded when other IDF soldiers opened fire on the perpetrator.
A heightened security presence is to be anticipated in the area over the coming hours. Further such attacks cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
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.
