Car rams Israeli police, driver shot dead

Local media reported that several police officers were injured in the ramming and that the driver of the vehicle was shot dead.

As Israeli security forces worked at the scene of the incident, police were seen throwing a stun grenade in the direction of journalists.

New clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli police in the area, which was sparked by the planned evictions of several Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah, an area captured by Israel in a 1967.

Palestinians live in most of Sheikh Jarrah's homes, but Israeli settlers have moved in to some of its properties.
