A Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, the health ministry said, in what the Israeli army called an attempted car ramming.

The health ministry said the man, who was not named, was shot in the Al-Bireh neighborhood of Ramallah.

The army said he “attempted to run over” soldiers, lightly injuring one.
