Palestinian shot dead after ramming 3 Israeli soldiers: Military
The military said one of the soldiers sustained moderate injuries and the other two were slightly hurt when a Palestinian rammed his vehicle into them as the troops were carrying out engineering work along a West Bank road, north of the city of Hebron.
Another soldier, on patrol, then shot the alleged assailant, the military said.
Palestinians carried out a wave of car-ramming attacks in the West Bank in late 2015 and in 2016, but the frequency of such incidents has since decreased.
Israel captured the West Bank in a 1967 Middle East war. Palestinians seek to establish a state there and in the Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital. Israeli-Palestinian peace talks collapsed in 2014.
