Two Israeli soldiers were killed, and another two were wounded, in a car-ramming attack carried out by a Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank on Friday.

The Israeli military said on Twitter the suspect, 26-year-old Alaa Rattab-a-Latif Kabha, had been taken to a hospital and was being questioned.

ZAKA rescue organization volunteers reported one soldier dead at the scene and a second succumed to his injuries a short time later.

"There is no such thing as individual terrorism; this terrorism is supported by Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority which provides money to the families of terrorists".

There have been a number of previous attacks by Palestinians using cars to ram into groups of Israeli soldiers or civilians.

There were also skirmishes between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters all over the West Bank.

The settlements are considered illegal under global law, though Israel disputes this. Palestinians remain outraged at this decision, as East Jerusalem is Palestinian land and home to Al Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site for Muslims.
