A Palestinian attempted a car-ramming and knife attack against Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank on Monday and was shot dead, Israel's army said.

The incident occurred at a junction in Tekoa, south of Jerusalem. One soldier was reported lightly wounded.

According to the army, the assailant attempted the car-ramming, then exited the vehicle and tried to stab soldiers.

The violence was the latest in a wave of fighting that erupted in September 2015.

Since then, Palestinian attackers have killed 43 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and attacks using cars to ram into troops or civilians.

During that time, Israeli forces have killed over 250 Palestinians, most of them said by Israel to be attackers while others were killed in clashes.
