Palestinian shot, killed after alleged attack at Nablus checkpoint


Two Palestinians were shot in the Nablus district on Friday after allegedly attempting to stab an Israeli border policeman at a military checkpoint, Israel's army said.

An Israeli army spokesperson said two Palestinians tried to stab an Israeli border policeman at the Tappuah, or Zatara, checkpoint south of Nablus, with both attackers shot.

Israeli police confirmed that one Palestinian was killed and the other man shot and "captured," with his condition thought to be critical.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the man killed as Qassem Mahmoud Sabaneh from Jenin.

Director of the ambulance and emergency unit of the Red Crescent, Abed al-Halim Jafreh, told Ma'an that medics treated the critically injured man at the scene.

Sabaneh died from multiple gunshot wounds, he added, with medics prohibited from reaching his body. The area, including the checkpoint, was closed following the incident. more
