The condition of the other two injured individuals is defined as severe and light. Later, the critically injured person's death was confirmed.

Aryeh Herschler, a volunteer from ZAKA in the Judea and Samaria District, said, "We arrived at the scene of the attack within a few minutes. There were several injured individuals lying on the road, including one severely injured with a head injury. MDA ambulances transferred the injured to the hospital, where the severe injury victim's death was determined."

Gallant: "Wishing a full recovery to the injured from the attack."

Minister of Defense, Yoav Gallant, held an emergency meeting shortly (Thursday) after the car-ramming attack at the Maccabim checkpoint in Benjamin this morning, in which one person was killed and three others were injured. Later on, a situation assessment will also take place with senior members of the security establishment.

Minister Gallant addressed the morning attack: "I send my condolences to the family of the victim in this morning's car-ramming attack and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. This was a severe attack, and I highly appreciate the security forces for their determined action that led to the quick neutralization of the assailant."

The leader of the Machane HaMamlachti Party, Member of Knesset Benny Gantz, expressed his sorrow and response to the severe event this morning: "Another difficult morning. Deadly terrorism claims lives again. I join in the grief of the victim's family, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and commend the response of the IDF and the security personnel of the Border Police, which led to the neutralization of the terrorist. This morning as well, we will remember – the resilience of Israel is stronger than terror. With determination and responsibility, we will overcome our adversaries."
