Palestinian killed during alleged car attack

Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man on Wednesday at bus stop near the Gush Etzion junction in the southern occupied West Bank, the site of several deadly incidents over the past year and a half. The military claims that Suhaib Moussa Mashour Mashahra, 21, from the Jerusalem-area village of al-Sawahira, was shot during the course of a car ramming attack that left an Israeli man with light-to-moderate injuries. “The military said it was certain the car-ramming was an attack, based on military footage of the incident and the fact that a knife was found inside the car. The army however refused to release the footage,” the Tel Aviv daily Haaretz reported.

Israeli media outlets published a photo purporting to show a knife found in Mashahra’s car. Other photos from the scene show the front of Mashahra’s car smashed up against the back of a bus, and Mashahra lying on the ground, his face covered with blood, as a soldier examines him.

Mashahra was taken to an Israeli hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival, an Israeli army spokesperson told media. Your Evening News From Israel - Apr. 19, 2017
