Three Israeli Border Police officers were injured in a car ramming attack near Hebron.

Israeli military and police forces were searching the area for the driver, according to the Israel Police.

Earlier on Sunday, a Palestinian man was shot and killed at the same junction after he attempted to stab the officers there, the IDF said. The attack occurred during what the IDF said was a “violent riot” in Hebron.
