- Story Text:Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian attacker who tried to run them over with a car in the occupied West Bank on Friday (May 29), the military said.
No Israelis were hurt in the car-ramming attack near a Jewish settlement, the military said in a statement.
"In response, the troops fired and neutralized the assailant," it said.
Palestinian officials had no immediate comment.
Tension has risen in recent weeks with Israel saying it hopes to move ahead with a plan to extend sovereignty to Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank, territory Palestinians want for their own independent state.
Palestinians have vehemently opposed such a move.
