JERUSALEM, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Israeli police said they shot dead a Palestinian who tried to ram his car into a group of Israeli officers in a refugee camp in East Jerusalem on Monday morning.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said border police officers were finishing a raid in the refugee camp of Shuafat when a car sped up toward them. They opened fire at the car, killing the driver and seriously injuring a passenger in the vehicle, she added.
No Israelis were injured in the incident.
Violence has rocked Israel and the West Bank since mid-September, claiming the lives of least 220 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two U.S. citizens, and two asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan.
