JERUSALEM – The Israeli military says security forces have shot and killed a Palestinian man who was in a car speeding toward them in the West Bank.
The military says the officers, who are with Israel's paramilitary border police, were confiscating an arms-manufacturing machine on Wednesday when the car accelerated toward them. It says the security forces fired toward the car, killing the man.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified him as 22-year-old Anwar al-Salaymeh.
The military says another Palestinian was taken to hospital, and a third Palestinian was detained for questioning. It says the military is reviewing the matter.
Israel says it has raided dozens of West Bank arms-making factories this year to quell an ongoing spate of Palestinian violence.
