Israeli troops kill Palestinian after suspected car ramming

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Palestinian Health Ministry says Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man who Israeli police say attempted to ram his car into Israeli forces.

Israeli police say a driver attempted to strike forces working on “security measures” near the West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday. Police say forces opened fire at the car and that no Israeli forces were harmed.

The incident comes two days after gunmen wounded seven Israelis in the West Bank, including a pregnant 21-year-old whose baby was prematurely delivered by cesarean section after the attack. The baby remains in critical condition.

Following that attack, Israeli forces carried out raids in the West Bank city of Ramallah in search of the gunmen, including into the offices of the official Palestinian news agency.
