Palestinian shot dead after alleged car ramming
A Palestinian was shot dead after allegedly ramming his vehicle into a group of Israelis lightly injuring two soldiers, according to Israeli officials.
The alleged attack took place at a bus station near the Israeli West Bank settlement of Kfar Adumim, northeast of Jerusalem.
Friday’s incident raises the number of Palestinians killed since Oct. 1 to 98. The violence has also left 17 Israelis, an American and an Eritrean dead.
The past week has been the deadliest thus far.
Attempts to ease the tensions, including a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry have so far proved unsuccessful.
Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has called a day of rage today.
More than 800 Palestinians have been arrested over the past two months, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon told public radio on Thursday.
