Israeli forces shoot Palestinian man dead in occupied West Bank
Ahmed Yacoub Taha, 39, was shot dead near Salfit, the ministry said via Telegram.
An Israeli statement said the Palestinian was driving but deviated from his lane and attempted to ram into civilians and security personnel who were standing at the junction. The individual then exited the car and attempted to stab a police officer, the statement added.
Israeli forces said the man was carrying a knife and security forces opened fire and "neutralised" him.
A video circulated on social media showed a soldier firing at a Palestinian multiple times, even after he had fallen to the ground. Reuters could not confirm the authenticity of the video.
The Israeli military has raided towns and villages across the West Bank nearly every day for over a year.
They and Israeli settlers have killed 103 Palestinians so far this year.
Israel captured the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the core of a future independent state, during the 1967 Middle East war.
