Woman bomber pulled up by traffic officer after driving ‘suspiciously’ near West Bank checkpoint.
A Palestinian driver activated an explosive device at a checkpoint in the West Bank Sunday morning, lightly wounding a police officer who pulled her over.
The terrorist herself was severely wounded, says Magen David Adom (MDA).
The Judea and Samaria District Police said that a traffic officer noticed a vehicle driving suspiciously on route 437, which connects Ma’ale Adumim and a-Zaim checkpoint. He signaled for her to stop by the side of the road, and when he stepped outside to inspect her, she exclaimed “Allah Akbar” (God is Great) and exploded her car. The wounded officer was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center with reported burns to his face.
