UN chief appeals for calm during visit to Jerusalem
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for fast action to halt the “dangerous escalation in violence” between Israelis and Palestinians.
He told reporters in Jerusalem it was not too late to avoid a broader crisis.
Mr Ban spoke soon after police said a Palestinian drove his car into a group of Israelis in the occupied West Bank, injuring a soldier and a civilian.
Later, a Palestinian man was killed during clashes with Israeli troops near the Gaza border fence, medics said.
Eight Israelis and more than 40 Palestinians, including attackers, have been killed in recent weeks.
