While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

A security guard at the Tanim crossing in the West Bank was moderately injured by a vehicle coming from the Palestinian side of the crossing in a suspected attack on Monday.

The guard, a 34-year-old male, was standing at the crossing when the driver accelerated and hit him. MDA medics and paramedics found the guard lying on the ground. He was brought to Sheba Medical Center in Tel HaShomer with injuries to his limbs, chest and head in stable condition.

MDA paramedic Alik Iskimov told Ynet: “We arrived to find a man in his 30s from the security forces who had apparently been run over by a terrorist. We found him sprawled on the ground with extensive bruises all over his body. We treated him with bandages and evacuated him to Tel HaShomer Hospital.”

Security forces at the scene shot the suspect who was driving the vehicle, who was 16-year-old. He was brought to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba where he died shortly after.

This attack comes less than two days after 20-year-old ultra-Orthodox Avraham Elmaleh was stabbed by a Palestinian at the Nablus Gate in Jerusalem on Saturday afternoon.
