During a nightly operation in the West Bank, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) shot and killed a Palestinian man who attempted to ram a vehicle into the troops, the IDF spokesperson said in a statement on Tuesday morning.

“Tonight, during IDF operational activity in the village of Bir Nabala, south of Ramallah, IDF soldiers set up a checkpoint along a road in the area in order to allow additional troops to operate in the area without traffic,” the statement said.

“IDF soldiers at the checkpoint spotted a vehicle stopping at the checkpoint and suddenly accelerating toward another group of soldiers operating in the area, in a way that endangered the lives of the soldiers,” the IDF spokesperson added.

“The soldiers responded with fire in order to thwart the threat. No IDF injuries were reported.”

  1. This is a war crime. I call on BOTH SIDES to tone down the inflammatory rhetoric. I’ve spoken to the ICC to press charges against apartheid Israel. Kirsten Gillibrand has sent a letter to President Psaki to immediately close the American embassy in Jerusalem. Maskless John Kerry is on his way over to the region to make sure racist Israel pays a heavy price.
