Israeli occupation forces killed a Palestinian who drove his car into Zionist soldiers in the northern West Bank on Thursday.
“A Palestinian attacker rammed his vehicle into forces securing routes near Huwara and wounded a soldier,” an occupation army statement said, referring to a checkpoint near Nablus in the north of the occupied West Bank.
“The assailant was shot by forces on site, resulting in his death.”
Occupation medical services said they were treating a soldier who was lightly wounded.
The occupied territories have been, since October, rocked by a wave of attacks against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds. Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.
According to the UnitedNations 170 Palestinians have been martyred, while the operations against the Zionist occupiers killed 26 Israelis since the start of the year and until December 28 in attacks and clashes.
During that same period more than 15,000 Palestinians and 350 Israelis were wounded, the UN said on Wednesday.
