PA daily describes truck-ramming: Driver "died as a Martyr, shot and killed by the occupation forces, after he crashed into soldiers"

Headline: "4 of the occupation's soldiers were killed and an additional 15 were injured in a car ramming operation in occupied Jerusalem"
     "The chorus of the Israeli right, which [Israeli] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads, did not delay in making inciting statements against the PA and holding it responsible for the car ramming attack that took place yesterday [Jan. 8, 2017] in occupied Jerusalem, in which 4 of the occupation's soldiers were killed, and an additional 15 were injured, 3 of them seriously.
In an unscheduled meeting that was held against the background of the car ramming operation, the reduced [Israeli] Political-Security Cabinet decided to demolish the home in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in East Jerusalem of the family of the Martyr (Shahid) that carried out the operation, not to transfer his body to his family, to reject any request the family has submitted or will submit for unification with their relatives in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and to blockade Jabel Mukaber and arrest anyone who shows joy over the operation…
The truck driver, a resident of Jabel Mukaber, died as a Martyr, shot and killed by the occupation forces (sic., he was shot by a civilian), after he crashed into soldiers in the park in the settlement neighborhood of 'Armon Hanatziv,' which overlooks the Old City of Jerusalem."

Fadi Al-Qanbar – 28-year-old Palestinian terrorist who on Jan. 8, 2017, murdered 4 Israeli soldiers – officer Yael Yekutiel, 20, and cadets Shir Hajaj, 22, Shira Tzur, 20, and Erez Orbach, 20 – and wounded over 15 other soldiers in a truck ramming attack at the Armon Hanatziv Promenade, in southeast Jerusalem. After ramming into the soldiers at high speed, Al-Qanbar ran over the wounded soldiers again repeatedly, until an armed civilian, who was also hit by the truck, managed to get up and shoot and kill the terrorist. Al-Qanbar supported ISIS online.
