Israeli troops, Palestinian wounded in south Nablus ‘car attack’
Palestinian man allegedly tried to run them over before being shot near Za’tara checkpoint
Two Israeli soldiers and a border police officer were wounded early Tuesday after a Palestinian allegedly attempted to run them over before being shot, the Israeli police and army said. The incident took place near the Za’tara checkpoint south of Nablus in the occupied West bank.
According to the army, the Palestinian was “receiving medical care,” while the three Israelis were evacuated for medical treatment.
This is the latest incident in a wave of violence in Israel and the illegally occupied Palestinian territories since Oct. 1, and came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived for separate talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas.
The violence has left 92 Palestinians dead, as well as 17 Israelis, an American and an Eritrean.
Around half of the Palestinians killed have been designated alleged attackers. Others have been shot dead during clashes with Israeli security forces.
