Palestinian Martyred, zionist Soldier injured in New Stabbing Attack
A Palestinian stabbed and wounded an Israeli occupation soldier in the southern West Bank on Tuesday before being shot dead.
“An assailant stabbed a soldier at the Gush Etzion junction,” occupation army statement said.
“Forces at the scene responded to the attack and shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” the statement said, noting that the injured soldier was receiving emergency medical treatment.
A spokesman for the Zionist entity’s Magen David Adom emergency medical service said a 34-year-old Israeli was taken to hospital with stab wounds to his face and hand.
The occupied territories have been, since October, rocked by a wave of attacks against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds. Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.
The Palestinian operations since the start of October have killed 22 Israelis, while the Israeli attacks killed 139 Palestinians.
