Israeli police forces shot dead a Palestinian driver whose car rammed into a bus stop in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli police said.
The incident injured 14 people with no life threatening wounds, however, the Palestinian driver, 21-year-old Abdul Mohsen Hassouna from Beit Hanina in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem was shot dead following the accident.
"Terrorist attack at the entrance of Jerusalem minutes ago," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld tweeted. "Terrorist drove vehicle into bus stop at entrance of city. Terrorist shot at scene."
Since the latest wave of violence - the worst since the 2014 Gaza war - began in early October, at least 112 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, while 19 Israelis have been killed.
Palestinians allege that the recent wave of violence is the result of frustration from nearly half-a-century of occupation, and they accuse Israel of using excessive force to suppress the unrest, while Israel allege that it has been caused by Palestinian campaign of lies and provocation surrounding the Muslim holy site of Al Aqsa Mosque.
PLO Central Council member Muhammad Eshteyyah said in a press conference last week that 85 percent of the Palestinian deaths since October 1 could have been prevented if the Israeli “shoot-to-kill” policy was not implemented.
