Palestinian shot dead after Beersheba attack kills Israeli, wounds 9


A suspected Palestinian was shot dead in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba after he allegedly opened fire in the city's central bus station, killing one soldier and injuring at least nine other Israelis, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an that nine Israelis had been hospitalized following the attack.

He said the attacker was shot dead, although he was unable to confirm that he was Palestinian.

He initially said that there had been two attackers, one of whom was apprehended.

Although it remained clear who the second individual was, Israeli media suggested the second man may have been an Eritrean asylum seeker. Israeli news site Haaretz reported that the asylum seeker was shot by Israeli police after they "misidentified him as a terrorist." more
