BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday shot and killed a Palestinian man who drove a tractor into an army base north of Jerusalem, according to Israeli media and a military official.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that soldiers confirmed a "direct hit" after firing at the Palestinian, who she said had driven a tractor into an army base in al-Ram, near Jerusalem.

"The Palestinian made it into the base which posed a life threat to the soldiers nearby," the spokeswoman said.

Israel's Walla news site reported that the unnamed man died after resuscitation efforts failed at a hospital in Qalandiya, near Ramallah. It said he suffered five bullet wounds.

Palestinian security officials named him as Yusef Ahmed Radaida, 28, AFP reported.

The Israeli army said a soldier was lightly injured by the tractor.
