JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says a Palestinian assailant rammed his car into a group of soldiers in the West Bank and was then shot and killed.

The military says the attacker injured three of the soldiers on Monday before he was shot dead by another soldier at the scene. The troops were performing engineering work on a route in the southern West Bank.

Since 2015, Palestinians have killed over 50 Israelis in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks and Israeli forces have killed over 260 Palestinians in that same period. Israel has described most of the Palestinians killed as attackers, but occasional clashes have also turned deadly.
