A Palestinian woman motorist whom authorities say sought to run over a group of Border Police officers near the West Bank village of Silwad was shot and killed just before sundown on Friday.
No Israelis were injured in the incident.
According to a police statement, the officers noticed that the woman began accelerating her vehicle toward their position. At that point, one of the officers opened fire and scored a direct hit, killing the motorist.
Car rammings have been a commonly used tactic by Palestinian assailants during the course of what is becoming known in Israel as “the lone wolf intifada” that has unfolded these past few months.
Twenty Israelis and a US citizen have been killed in such incidents since the start of October. Israeli forces or armed civilians have killed at least 126 Palestinians, 77 of whom authorities described as assailants, while others died in clashes with security forces.
