Tonight (Wednesday), four police officers were injured in a stampede and stabbing attack near Kochav Yair, close to the Tira intersection. Medical teams from Magen David Adom (MDA) provided treatment to the wounded, with one officer in serious condition and another in moderate condition. The assailant, identified as a 26-year-old resident of Tira, was shot dead by security personnel.

According to police reports, the terrorist attempted to run over several police officers who were conducting operations at the checkpoint near Tira Junction. Subsequently, he deliberately struck two officers with his vehicle before proceeding to the Eliyahu checkpoint. There, he exited his vehicle and attempted to stab security guards, injuring two more officers. Security personnel at the checkpoint responded by firing upon the attacker, resulting in his immediate demise. Initial investigations have ruled out the involvement of any additional terrorists or accomplices in the incident.

Later in the night, Superintendent Avi Biton, Central District Commander, arrived at the scene to conduct a special situation assessment. It was determined that the police checkpoint was part of an operational activity targeting car thieves. The vehicle used in the attack was not linked to car theft but was instead deliberately used to carry out the assault.

MDA teams attending the scene administered medical treatment to the injured officers, including a 24-year-old man in serious condition with head injuries and a 46-year-old man in moderate condition with injuries to the head and limbs. Two additional officers sustained minor injuries. The seriously injured officer was transported to Linson Hospital, while the others were evacuated to Kochav Meir Hospital.

Paramedics Amir Dehri and Eyal Davidson described the scene: "We arrived at the scene and saw on the side of the road and on the sidewalk 4 injured people lying far from each other. We provided them with quick medical treatment in the field and evacuated them to the hospital, with one in serious condition and the rest in moderate to mild condition."
