Israeli soldiers have shot and killed a Palestinian who tried to break into an army base in the occupied West Bank. The army has raised its security level in the wake of the incident at a base north of Jerusalem.

Military sources said that Younis Al-Aibadi drove a bulldozer towards the base, hitting a soldier who was on guard at the time .Al-Aibadi, 28, lived in Beit Hanina and his brother Merei carried out a similar operation with his bulldozer near Malha Commercial Complex in southern Jerusalem four years ago; he too was killed on the spot.

An Israeli officer said that the army did not receive any warning about the attack. Security sources believe that this was an isolated, individual act and was not linked to any Palestinian faction.
