An Israeli woman has been killed in an apparent car-ramming terror attack near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in central Samaria.

“United Hatzalah EMS volunteers performed CPR on a woman who was critically injured in a car-ramming incident near Havat Gilad. Unfortunately, following a lengthy resuscitative effort, paramedics at the scene were forced to pronounce her death due to the severity of her injuries,” United Hatzalah said in a statement.

Samaria Regional Council chairman Yossi Dagan, who arrived at the scene of the attack, said security forces are investigating the situation.

“This is a very difficult incident. All motives are being checked. We, the residents of Samaria, will continue to be strong and sanctify life,” said Dagan.

In a statement, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed the car-ramming incident. Reports indicate that the perpetrator is suspected of escaping the scene; roadblocks have been set up in the area to try to apprehend any suspects.
