Palestinian man killed after alleged knife attack near settlement
A Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli soldiers after he allegedly attacked one of them with a knife in the southern West Bank, military sources reported Friday.
The suspect had allegedly managed to injure a soldier in the face before being killed outside the Jewish settlement Tel Rumeida in the city of Hebron, officials said.
The incident occurred on the same day two other Palestinians and a Jordanian man were killed in what the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have termed "a wave of terror attacks."
The military report added the soldier had been taken to a Jerusalem hospital for treatment for his injuries.
Hebron is the largest city in the West Bank, with a population of around 150,000.
It has become the epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the past few years, and is divided into two sectors: H1, under Palestinian control, and H2, under Israeli military occupation.
The H2 sector is host to the Ibrahimi Mosque, Islam's fourth-holiest site _ after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque.
