Israeli police shot and killed a Palestinian driver who they said tried to ram his vehicle into a group of officers in the West Bank on Tuesday.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the man’s death, but gave no further details of the incident near the city of Hebron.

“A suspect Palestinian drove his vehicle at a security vehicle and them attempted to drive into border police officers who were securing the area. They responded to the threat at the scene and opened fire at the vehicle,” spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

In a separate incident in the West Bank, police said they arrested a second Palestinian driver whom they suspected had tried to run over troops.
