The 26-year-old man hit four police officers at a roadblock erected to control motorists in Kochav Yaïr, a town adjacent to the occupied West Bank, northeast of Tel Aviv. The police officers were hospitalized for minor injuries, according to this source.

The assailant “then continued his way towards the Eliyahu crossing point (near the Palestinian town of Qalqiliya, Editor’s note), where he tried to stab security agents,” added the statement.
