Terrorist Taken Out After Running Down 2 Police Officers

Two Israeli policewomen were injured in east Jerusalem on Wednesday when they were hit by a car driven by a Palestinian who was then shot dead, police said.

It was the latest in a string of lone-wolf attacks by Palestinians using cars to ram pedestrians or police, a trend which began in Jerusalem in October but has also spread to the West Bank.

The incident took place in A-Tur on the Mount of Olives, with police spokeswoman Luba Samri saying the driver veered off the road and struck two border police officers, both of them female.

The two policewomen were moderately injured and taken to different hospitals in the city, she said.

The driver was identified by relatives as 41-year-old Imran Abu Dheim from the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Jabal Mukaber.
