Palestinian shot, killed after 4th alleged stabbing attack


Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man after an attempted stabbing attack on an Israeli bus in northwest Jerusalem on Monday evening, Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.

Rosenfeld said an Israeli soldier was lightly wounded in the attack before the Palestinian was shot dead.

Israeli media reported that the Palestinian was shot and killed after he attempted and failed to take the Israeli soldier's gun, before attacking the soldier with a knife.

The attack reportedly occurred under the Chords Bridge in northwest Jerusalem.

The Palestinian was the third to be shot dead by Israeli forces following an alleged stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Monday, in one of four reported attacks.

Just hours before the incident, two Israelis were seriously injured in another alleged attack, with one Palestinian suspect, reportedly a minor, shot dead at the scene, and another wounded, Israeli police said. more
