Elichai Taherlev, 20, of the Golani Brigade was killed in the incident, and another 19-year-old soldier was slightly injured.

One Israeli was killed and another injured on Thursday in a car-ramming attack near the Ofra settlement in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli army said, adding the alleged attacker was arrested.

The PPC also renewed its call for worldwide human rights groups, including UNICEF, to strengthen initiatives and campaigns to protect Palestinian children.

Palestinians were carrying the large metal pieces first to Shuhada checkpoint, where just a few days before, Israeli forces extended their perimeter of control further into the H1 neighborhood supposedly under full Palestinian control.

Concluding its statement, the Ministry said Israel should be held accountable for its "blatant unending crimes against Palestinian children that have continued unabated for decades".

Witnesses told Israeli media that the vehicle approached a bus stop at the Ofra junction, on the Route 60 highway north-east of Ramallah, and then accelerated towards the two Israelis waiting there.

Witnesses told local media at the time they found more than 25 bullet holes in Ghazal's apartment, and accused Israeli forces of "executing" him when they could have easily detained him.

The attack was part of a spate of violence that broke out in September 2015 but has abated in recent months. Others were shot dead during protests, clashes, or in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

In an article in The Washington Post about last week's Arab League summit (March 29, "In a message to Trump, Arab leaders renew calls for a Palestinian state, ") reporter and Cairo Bureau Chief Sudarsan Raghavan omitted important context about the group's statements and positions about Israel.

Relations between Israel and Palestine have been shattered for decades.
