A Palestinian driver was killed as he tried to run over Israeli soldiers at a West Bank checkpoint.
Another Palestinian in the minivan and an Israeli civilian also were injured in the Tuesday afternoon incident.
The driver was seriously wounded when an Israeli soldier opened fire as the vehicle attempted to overrun the Eyal checkpoint near the Palestinian city of Kalkilya. He later died of his wounds.
The minivan had Israeli license plates and held several Palestinian passengers without documentation reportedly attempting to enter Israel illegally, according to The Jerusalem Post. They were arrested and taken for questioning.
