Palestinian Shot Dead While Trying to Stab Israeli Soldier
A Palestinian man who tried to stab an Israeli soldier in the West Bank was shot dead before he was able to do any harm, the IDF said on Tuesday.
“The assailant arrived by vehicle from the city of Nablus, exited the vehicle and attempted to stab an IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldier who was at a nearby check post. Another soldier responded by firing towards the terrorist and neutralized him,” an IDF statement said, adding that none of the troops were hurt.
Palestinian health officials confirmed that the assailant had been killed, but made no further comment.
