Also killed was the terrorist who undertook the attack. One police officer was injured as well.

Police identified the officer as 1st Sgt. Erez Levi, 34, Hy”d.

The deaths were the result of an apparent attempted car-ramming attack against a group of police officers, who were trying to keep the peace in the face of riots by residents, as authorities sought to demolish illegal structures. A jeep sped in the direction of a group of police officers, whereupon officers opened fire on the vehicle, killing the driver and a second individual. One rioter was injured and taken to a Be’er Sheva hospital for treatment. Police said that the driver was a member of an Islamist group, but this was denied by family members.
