Palestinian dies in ramming attack


A Palestinian rammed his vehicle into Israeli soldiers, wounding two at a bus stop near a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank on Friday, (November 27) and was shot dead by a civilian, police and the military said.

Almost-daily Palestinian stabbings, car rammings and shootings, have killed 19 Israelis and one U.S. citizen since October 1 and Israeli forces have killed 92 Palestinians, some of whom were carrying out assaults and others in clashes with police and troops. Many of those killed have been teenagers.

The Palestinians have accused Israel of using excessive force to quell attacks, saying that in many cases assailants could have been stopped and detained without being shot and killed.

The attacks have been fuelled in part by Muslim anger over Jewish visits to the Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem, Islam’s third holiest site, which is sacred in Judaism too.

The Palestinians are also frustrated by the failure of decades of peace talks to deliver them an independent state.

A flash visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories by U.S. Secretary John Kerry on Tuesday (November 24), aimed at quelling the violence, has shown no sign of success.
