18-Dec-15: Vehicle ramming attack on Jerusalem's northern edge

From Israel National News, a reminder that the ordinary lethal violence carried out against any available Israelis by non-uniformed combatants on the Palestinian Arab side keep on coming:
A Palestinian terrorist attempted to run down Israeli police and soldiers using his car at a Samaria checkpoint on Friday but was shot and wounded without causing Israeli casualties, police said. "A Palestinian terrorist... drove at speed toward police and soldiers in an attempt to ram them," a statement said, adding that a guard fired at the car and hit the driver in the leg. The alleged assailant was then placed under arrest. The incident occurred at the Qalandiya checkpoint, near Ramallah and close to Qalandiya refugee camp, where soldiers on Wednesday shot dead two Palestinians who tried to ram their cars into troops in separate attacks. An AFP journalist at the scene of Friday's incident said the wounded Palestinian could be seen sitting on a stretcher as security forces fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse onlookers and journalists.
Sabbath is descending upon Jerusalem. May its spirit of peace and holiness prevail over the forces of darkness.
