An elderly woman was killed and at least 17 people were injured, including at least seven children and teenagers, in a multipronged Palestinian car-ramming and stabbing terror attack in the central Israel city of Ra’anana early on Monday afternoon.

During the attack, the perpetrators — two West Bank Palestinians working in Israel illegally — seized at least three vehicles and rammed pedestrians in several locations in the city, also stabbing one or more of their victims, according to police, medics, and eyewitnesses.

Meir Hospital said a woman in her 70s, who arrived in critical condition, succumbed to her wounds. She was not immediately named.

The two suspects were named as Ahmed Zidat, 25, and Mahmoud Zidad, 44, both residents of the southern West Bank town of Bani Naim, close to Hebron. According to the Shin Bet, both had been blacklisted for entering Israel illegally numerous times in the past.
