Palestinian killed by Israeli forces after alleged car attack

There have been several violent incidents between Israelis and Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank in recent weeks.

A young Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli forces in the West Bank last night after he allegedly attempted to run them over with his vehicle.

The Israel Defense Forces reported a “car-ramming attempt” next to the Israeli settlement of Mevo Dotan, west of the Palestinian city Jenin. No soldiers were injured and the driver was “neutralized,” the IDF said in a tweet.
