Israeli police said an officer shot and wounded a Palestinian driver who attempted to run over and stab Israeli security personnel in the West Bank on Wednesday.
The Israeli military said the man attempted to ram his car into a soldier and a police officer at an intersection near the West Bank city of Nablus.
The police said in a statement that the officer shot the Palestinian after he came out of the vehicle and ran at the officers with a knife.
The soldier and the policeman were lightly wounded while the attacker was moderately wounded, the army said.
