A Palestinian was shot dead by the Israeli army in a settlement in the West Bank


The Israeli army and the Palestinian Authority announced Friday that a Palestinian was shot dead in a settlement in the southern occupied West Bank.

And the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported the death of a Palestinian, south of Hebron, “by the occupation bullets,” without specifying his identity.

In a brief statement, the Israeli army indicated that there had been an “infiltration” into the settlement of Tina Amrim, where “a terrorist attempted to stab a civilian,” adding that the stabbing attempt was unsuccessful and the attacker was “neutralised”.

In response to a question by Agence France-Presse, the army said that an attacker carrying a knife was killed by an armed civilian.

The army did not clarify whether the shooter was the civilian who was subjected to an attempted stabbing, he said.

About three million Palestinians live in the West Bank, along with some 490,000 Israelis who reside in settlements that the United Nations considers illegal under international law.

Since the beginning of the year, at least 154 Palestinians, 20 Israelis, a Ukrainian woman and an Italian man have been killed in violence related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to an AFP tally based on official Israeli and Palestinian sources.
