At Tapuah Junction, a busy intersection, transit interchange and hitch-hiking point on Route 60 in the Samaria district that attracts hostile attention for those reasons alone, there has been yet another vehicle-ramming attack.
Shortly after 8 this morning (Tuesday), a Palestinian Arab driving a fairly new and shiny black Volkswagen Polo with PA license plates (we see this in the video) drove at high speed into a cluster of commuters standing at one of the Tapuah bus stops.

The attacker was stopped by gunshots from patrolling Border Guard forces at the scene. We know he or she was alive at the end of the attack, though neutralized; there are no details we can find for now about his/her condition or fate. What's important is the attack was stopped and a worse outcome averted.
