Israeli troops killed two people in separate incidents, which an army spokesperson said featured an attempt to attack Israelis.

One fatality, a Palestinian resident, was shot Friday near Hebron inside a vehicle. Troops on the ground said he was trying to run them over before they opened fire on the car.  A Palestinian woman who was with the person killed Friday was critically wounded in the shooting, the Maan news agency reported. A knife was found in the car fired upon, the army said in a statement.

In an incident that occurred Friday in east Jerusalem, Israeli troops shot and killed a man reported to be a Jordanian citizen. He allegedly was trying to carry out a stabbing attack outside Damascus Gate. Three were reportedly injured during the attempted stabbing.
