One killed, twelve injured in Israel attack

Car-ramming adds to tensions amid Israel-Hamas conflict


In a tragic incident in Ra'anana, central Israel, a terror attack involving stolen vehicles has claimed one life and left at least 12 individuals injured, according to emergency services.

According to a Sky News report, Israeli police reported a "multiple car-ramming" attack where two suspects, belonging to the same family in Hebron, illegally entered Israel and carried out the assaults using three different vehicles, one of which was stolen.

Central district police chief Avi Biton stated, "They went out together and in parallel, to two different locations, took two cars and launched a series of rammings."

Thirteen people were rushed to the hospital for treatment, with a 70-year-old woman succumbing to her injuries. The national ambulance service, Magen David Adom (MDA), noted varying degrees of injuries among the victims, including a 34-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy in serious condition.

Eli Raymond from MDA emphasized the immediate medical response at the scene, stating, "We arrived at the scene with large forces, and we saw a number of injured people with different levels of injury.

Immediately we began administering medical care, including stopping bleeding, treating, and giving medication. We evacuated those injured for further treatment in the hospitals."

This incident unfolds against the backdrop of heightened security tensions amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Israel's Shin Bet security agency, alongside the police, is conducting an investigation into the attack.
