A terrorist attempted to carry out a ramming attack near the Beit Romano Jewish residence in Hevron Monday night. No injuries were reported.

An IDF soldier shot and neutralized the terrorist, who was transferred to security forces for questioning.

The attempted attack occurred as Arabs rioted in Jerusalem over the introduction of new security measures at the Temple Mount following a deadly terrorist attack Friday morning.

Arab rioters threw stones and blocked the Maale Mota Gur road in Jerusalem.

At the same time, dozens of Arabs gathered near the Lions' Gate and attacked policemen.
