Palestinian driving a tractor shot dead crashing into an army base

The Palestinian, later identified as Younes Radyeda from A-Ram, rammed his tractor through the guard post of the IDF Ramah base north of Jerusalem, running over and injuring the sentry. After crashing into a number of vehicles inside the base, the sentry and an officer chasing him opened fire. He was taken with severe injuries to the Kalandia checkpoint where he died. The dead man was the brother of Merei Radyeda, who riding a bulldozer through the streets of Jerusalem in March 2009, deliberately ran over two policemen before he too was shot to death.
