Israeli Police Kill Palestinian Who Attempted Ramming Attack

YERUSHALAYIM (Reuters) -

Israeli border police shot dead a Palestinian woman who tried to ram them with her car in Yehudah and Shomron on Friday, the police said.

None of the officers were hurt in the latest of a wave of similar, almost daily attacks.

In a separate incident, along the Gaza Strip frontier, Israeli troops opened fire at a group of stone-throwing Palestinians who approached the border fence, killing one of them, a Palestinian health official said.

The Israeli military said that hundreds of Palestinians had gathered near the border and were trying to damage the fence by hurling rocks and rolling burning tires at it, and to prevent infiltration, soldiers opened fire at the main instigators.
