1 Israeli killed in stabbing, shooting attacks in West Bank

The Israeli military says one Israeli has been killed and two others have been wounded in shooting and stabbing attacks in the West Bank.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The attacks occurred near the Ariel junction southwest of Nablus, and the Israeli regime said they were believed to have been carried out by a Palestinian.

 

“One Israeli is dead,” Israeli army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said, adding that the assailant “appears to be Palestinian.”

 

Israeli media earlier reported that an assailant stabbed a regime soldier and managed to take his gun and drive to the Gitai Avishar junction, where he allegedly shot other people.

 

The alleged attacker fled the scene.

Palestinian media reported that the Israeli military raided an area near the Palestinian village of Burqin in their search for the assailant. Residents said the situation was very tense there.

 

Tensions have been running high in the West Bank and the blockaded Gaza Strip since December 2017, when US President Donald Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s “capital” and moved Washington’s embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied Palestinian city.

 

While the Israeli regime had already been taking increasingly harsh measures against Palestinians, it has been emboldened by the Trump administration’s move.

 

The Israeli military regularly opens fatal fire on Palestinians, accusing them of seeking to stab its personnel.

 

Human rights groups have repeatedly slammed the Tel Aviv regime for its shoot-to-kill policy as a large number of the Palestinians killed at the scene of attacks did not pose any serious threat to Israelis.
