Israeli forces kill Palestinians suspected of car attack

Jerusalem (AP)-Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian driver on Wednesday. Police said they tried to carry out a car runaway attack at a checkpoint on the west bank.

Police said in a statement that when a man presented false documents at a checkpoint and were asked about them, he speeded up his car to Israeli soldiers.

Police said the army had fired and stopped a man who was later sentenced to death in a hospital in Jerusalem. Police said the soldier was slightly injured.

Police did not immediately release a video of the incident.

Palestinian attackers, usually acting on their own, have recently attempted dozens of stab wounds and vehicle runaways against Israeli forces.

However, Palestinians and human rights groups have accused Israeli forces of frequently using excessive force and, in some cases, killing innocent people who were mistaken for attackers.
