The junction has been the scene of many attacks since the current wave of violence began more than one and a half years ago.

One person was lightly-to-moderately wounded on Wednesday after being hit by a vehicle in a terror attack at the Gush Etzion Junction on Route 60 in the West Bank.

Pictures from the scene showed a auto that had collided with the back of a bus standing in a bus stop. Israeli army medics treated the driver at the scene, according to reports, but he later died of his wounds at the hospital.

According to MDA, the victim was approximately 60 years old. Palestinians say it stems from anger over 50 years of occupation.

The attack came days after a Palestinian fatally stabbed British exchange student Hannah Bladon on Jerusalem's light rail.

The TNB seems to have used a "legal loophole" to open its branch in Dahiat Al-Barid, which Israel considers a part of the West Bank, not East Jerusalem.

Israel says at least 163 of the Palestinians killed had launched stabbing, shooting or auto ramming attacks.

The incident was the latest in a spate of violence between Israelis and Palestinians that have claimed lives of at least 241 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two US nationals, a British tourist, and two African asylum seekers since September 2015.
