Earlier this evening IDF (Zahal) soldiers prevented a terror attack in the “Ramah” IDF (Zahal) base near A-Ram, southeast of Ramallah.

At approximately 7:00pm, a terrorist driving a tractor barged into the base while attempting to run over a soldier numerous times. When inside the base, the tractor hit and caused damage to parked military vehicles.

Soldiers quickly recognized the severity of the situation and operated quickly and efficiently towards apprehending the terrorist. They opened fire at the suspect and reported a direct hit.

Palestinians are currently rioting at the scene. Security forces were rushed to the location in order to contain the riots.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF (Zahal) Spokesman: “The terrorist succeeded in breaking into the base and was determined to hurt soldiers and vandalize military property. Soldiers at the scene operated quickly in order to halt the terrorist and deter the immediate life threat he posed for the other soldiers nearby.”
