RAMALLAH, West Bank — Israel's internal security agency says a Palestinian man rammed his car into a military jeep in the West Bank, flipping it over, and then attacked the agents inside with an ax.

The Shin Bet agency says one of its agents opened fire and killed the Palestinian. It says two agents were hurt in the ax attack.

Palestinian truck driver Rafik Salem says the Palestinian car hit the jeep at high speed Monday before veering into an olive grove. He says an ax-wielding man emerged from the grove and attacked the Israelis.

It was not clear if the assailant acted on his own or on behalf of a group.
Palestinian attacks on Israelis in the West Bank have dropped off sharply since an uprising a decade ago, but tensions remain high.
