A Palestinian was shot dead after breaking through the gates of an army base near Jerusalem on a tractor.

The Israel Defense Forces is calling Thursday evening’s incident at the Rama base near the Palestinian town of Al-Ram a terror attack.

The Palestinian, identified as Younis Obaidi from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina, broke through the front perimeter of the base and began destroying military vehicles, according to reports.

Soldiers warned Obaidi several times to stop his actions before he was shot by two soldiers, according to the IDF. An Israeli soldier was injured in the incident.

The IDF said Palestitnians were rioting at the scene and that security forces were called to the area to contain the riots.

Last December, two Palestinians infiltrated the same base and stole a soldier’s gun. The base is northeast of Jerusalem and just outside its municipal boundaries.
