A second attack by a Muslim behind the wheel of a car was apparently attempted Sunday evening at Jabel Mukaber in eastern Jerusalem.
 
The driver tried to run over two policemen who were checking vehicles and trying to arrest rioters. The policemen were lightly wounded. They received initial medical assistance on the spot and were then taken away to receive medical attention.
 
The driver managed to escape but security forces are looking for him.
 
In the morning, an Arab truck driver drove wildly down a Tel Aviv street, killing one person and wounding 17 others, in what is almost certainly an intentional terror attack.
 
In Hevron, an IDF officer was lightly hurt Sunday evening from a brick that an Arab threw at him. 
 
South of Bethlehem, neat Beit Umar, Arabs threw rocks at Border Police. One policeman was moderately wounded and two others suffered light wounds.
