RAMALLAH, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) — The Palestinian man who carried out a car attack Sunday south of the West Bank city of Jericho died of his wounds in hospital after being shot by Israeli soldiers, the Palestinian Ministry of Health and security sources said. .

Barakat Oudeh, 49, of the Al-Eyzaria neighborhood, east of Jerusalem, drove near an intersection south of Jericho, hitting and injuring at least seven Israeli soldiers before Israeli officials opened fire and critically wounded him, they added.

A day earlier, a Palestinian armed with an assault rifle opened fire on Israeli settlers in the West Bank before being killed by a security guard and an off-duty soldier.

Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been rising since March, when the Israeli military stepped up military action and operations against Palestinian militants and activists by storming Palestinian towns in the West Bank.

Since the beginning of January, more than 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, including women and children, according to official Palestinian figures.

Sunday’s attack, the latest in a series of attacks between Israelis and Palestinians, comes two days before Israel’s fifth election in less than four years.
