At least five shots were fired at an Israeli vehicle in a drive-by terror attack from a passing vehicle near the Jewish community of Kedumim early Sunday afternoon, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

Emergency medical teams treated the victim in Kedumim, where he managed to drive himself to safety, before taking him to nearby Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba.

IDF forces are searching for the attackers.

An IDF soldier was struck by a car late Saturday night and injured in what is believed to be another vehicle terror attack, this one carried out near Hebron in Judea.

Rock-Throwing Arab Killed While Attacking IDF Commander, Soldier Hurt at Qalandia

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

An army commander shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab on Friday morning who had attacked the brigade commander’s vehicle.

The incident took place northeast of Jerusalem near the Arab village of Al-Ram, security sources said.

IDF Binyamin Region Division Col. Israel Shomer was driving to the Kalandiya checkpoint separating northern Jerusalem from Ramallah when his vehicle was attacked.

An Arab mob began hurling rocks at the vehicle. According to security sources, it appeared the attack on the commander’s vehicle was a planned ambush.

The terrorist was identified as Muhammad al-Qasba, 17.

“The commander reacted exactly as expected, given that the incident presented an immediate risk to life,” the security source pointed out.

No injuries were reported among IDF personnel. However, the commander’s vehicle was damaged. A photo shows the windshield is smashed, with a large hole directly in front of the driver’s side – making the lethal nature of the threat obvious.

The IDF deployed a large force to the area following the attack and “return fire” since it is clear there will be more riots to follow in the wake of the attacker’s death.

One IDF soldier has already been injured — albeit lightly — by a bottle hurled by a Palestinian Authority Arab while she was guarding the Qalandiya checkpoint Friday morning. The soldier was treated at the scene for the injury.

Terror groups and extremist imams in the mosques have been whipping local Arabs and Palestinian Authority citizens into a frenzy of hatred for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. In particular they seize the opportunity to address their followers in sermons during and after public prayers on Fridays at the mosques.

In addition, the Da’esh (ISIS) terror organization has also exhorted Muslims worldwide to “rise up” during Ramadan and attack local authorities – police, military personnel, political figures – and other targets.

The “Sinai Province” terror group (formerly Ansar Bayt al Maqdis) ambushed Egyptian military personnel and police in more than 15 separate attacks Wednesday, killing dozens and wounding more. The Egyptian army retaliated and eliminated more than 100 of the terrorists in a two-day operation in the Sinai Peninsula. The mop up is continuing with cooperation from Israel, which has also gone to high alert along its southern border with Sinai.

Last week there were three different ISIS attacks on three separate continents that left more than a hundred dead and several hundred wounded, almost all of them civilians.
