Israeli forces kill Palestinian after Hebron stab attack on soldier

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man near the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement in Hebron on Friday after stabbing a soldier in the area. A Palestinian news crew from Al-Quds TV captured the incident while reporting live in the area, with footage showing Israeli forces surrounding a Palestinian man lying injured on the ground and appearing to open fire.

Israel's army said a soldier was stabbed and moderately wounded by an assailant disguised as a "news photographer."

A journalist who witnessed the incident told Ma'an that he saw a man wearing a yellow vest marked 'PRESS' stabbing an Israeli soldier.

Israeli forces then opened fire multiple times, with another soldier reportedly injured by friendly fire during the incident.

Israeli forces assaulted Palestinian journalists in the area attempting to cover the incident, threatening that they would open fire unless they left.

Locals said Israeli soldiers prevented the Red Crescent from reaching the area to treat the man. more
