Jerusalem - The Israeli military says a Palestinian motorist has rammed his vehicle into a group of soldiers at a West Bank checkpoint, wounding three of them. It says the attacker was shot and wounded at the scene.

Tuesday attack comes as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives to try and calm two months of deadly violence.

The visit follows the deadliest week thus far of the outburst that erupted in mid-September over tensions surrounding a sensitive Jerusalem holy site and quickly spread across Israel and into the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Nineteen Israelis have been killed, mostly in stabbings, while 89 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire. Of them, 57 are said by Israel to be attackers and the rest were killed in clashes.
