Two Palestinians killed in Hebron after alleged stabbing attempts

Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian near the illegal Beit Hadassah settlement in Hebron in the second alleged stabbing attack in the city on Thursday.

Witnesses told Ma’an the incident took place in Shuhada Street nearby the settlement.

A Palestinian woman in the area at the time told Ma'an that she "heard gunshots and saw Israeli soldiers and settlers firing at a young Palestinian man while he was walking down a staircase," adding that she did not see anything in his hands.

The Israeli army said in an initial report that a “Palestinian assailant” attempted to stab an Israeli soldier “at a security post in Hebron” before being shot on site.

No Israeli injuries have been reported. more
