On Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian man after he reportedly rammed his car into Israeli soldiers at a military roadblock, seriously wounding one, near Ramallah in the central part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli sources claimed the Palestinian injured an officer after ramming his car into a soldier at the roadblock and stepping out of his car carrying an axe before the soldier, who was on the ground, fired several rounds at him and killed him.

The sources said the wounded soldier was conscious after suffering limb wounds before he was evacuated to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, where he was admitted to surgery.

The hospital said the Israeli sustained multi-systematic wounds and was in serious condition.

The Palestinian driver, who the soldiers killed, has been identified as Habes Abdul-Hafith Rayyan, 54, from Beit Duqqu town, northwest of occupied Jerusalem.

Habes is the father of Qussai Rayyan, who Israeli soldiers abducted in September of this year, 2022, and he remains imprisoned, and former political prisoner Assem Rayyan; both are said to be members of the Islamic Jihad.

A 20-year-old Israeli military officer was seriously wounded in a suspected car-ramming attack by a Palestinian at the Maccabim checkpoint in the West Bank on Wednesday.

The driver reportedly exited the vehicle after the ramming and attempted to attack the officer with an axe. The officer then shot and killed the assailant, according to the Israeli military.

Police intelligence officer Alon Kalfon recounted the scene, saying that the vehicle made a sharp turn to the right and ran into an IDF officer who was standing at the checkpoint. "The officer, while under the car, noticed that the assailant was holding an axe while running towards him, and shot him." Kalfon added.

The wounded man was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious condition.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of the assailant, identified as 54-year-old Habes Abdul-Hafeez Rayyan, a resident of the village of Beit Duqqo, and father of security prisoner Qusai Rayyan, according to the Palestinian prisoners' club.

Responding to the attack, Prime Minister Yair Lapid said Israel's "security forces are active and prepared for any attempt to harm Israeli citizens." He added "We will continue to conduct military activity to thwart terrorism."

He also wished "a speedy recovery to the IDF officer who bravely fought the terrorist" and "sav[ed] human lives."

Defense Minister Benny Gantz also wished a complete recovery to the officer.
