Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man on Wednesday after allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba in Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.
Witnesses told Ma'an that “Israeli soldiers shot 11 live bullets at the youth, let him bleed there, and put a knife in his hand."
The Israeli army said that "a Palestinian attempted to stab a soldier at a military position in Hebron" and that the "attacker was shot on site."
No injuries were reported. Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld also said that a "Palestinian terrorist" was shot and killed, adding that "security measures" were continuing in the area.
A local activist, Imad Abu Shamsieh, told Ma'an that “Israeli soldiers opened fire at a youth in the Tel Rumeida area where Hammam Said was killed on Tuesday.” more
