One Israeli was lightly wounded in a terrorist attack on Monday at the Gush Etzion Junction in Judea.

Magen David Adom emergency medical service personnel treated a man in his 30s at the scene before evacuating him to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem.

The Israel Defense Forces said that troops “neutralized” the terrorist.

Local media reported that the attacker was a female Palestinian.

Earlier this month, Lucy Dee, 48, and daughters Maia, 20, and Rina, 15, were killed in a Palestinian terrorist attack on the Route 57 highway near the Hamra Junction in the Jordan Valley.

Terrorists opened fire on the Dees’ passing vehicle, causing it to crash into the road’s shoulder. The terrorists then approached the car and riddled it with nearly two dozen bullets.

The IDF continues to search for the attackers.

And on April 7, Italian tourist Alessandro Parini was murdered in a car-ramming attack in Tel Aviv. The 35-year-old lawyer from Rome was killed when Arab Israeli terrorist Yousef Abu Jaber, 45, drove his vehicle into a crowd on a busy seaside promenade in the heart of the city.
