Israel: Deadly violence engulfs the West Bank leaving ten dead after Gaza bomb blitz
A DRIVER tried to "ram his car into an Israeli checkpoint" as a new wave of violence engulfed the West Bank leaving ten dead.
The fighting has escalated following the bombardment of Gaza as the region was hit with 1,000 missiles.
According to Palestinian officials, at least ten people were killed and hundreds were injured, with the majority of the casualties being shot by live ammunition.
A man who rammed his car into a military post was killed after attempting to stab a soldier while a number of protesters were killed after throwing stones at troops.
The Palestinian health ministry said another man was shot in the head in the West Bank town of al-Rihiya.
Dr Mustafa Barghouti, an independent Palestinian politician, told Sky News 60 protests were organised across the West Bank today.
He added this week's fighting is a "really unprecedented uprising" and said those killed were "just participating in protest and demonstrations".
