The Israeli police claimed that a soldier was killed and eight others were wounded in the shooting at the checkpoint.

The occupation forces closed Al-Za'im checkpoint, which separates the city of Jerusalem from its east, causing traffic on the roads leading to the south of the West Bank and the towns and villages of south and east Jerusalem.

The Israeli army also closed the Container military checkpoint east of Abu Dis, and  two Al-Za'im checkpoints east of Jerusalem to pedestrians and vehicles, and set up flying checkpoints in Silwan, Ras Al-Amud, Al-Tur, Al-Issawiya, and Shuafat.
