Zionist Israeli forces kill two Palestinians in east Jerusalem
Israeli forces shot dead a knife-wielding assailant in East Jerusalem on Friday and killed another attacker in a car that rammed into a bus stop near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank, police and the army said.
The man killed at the heavily-patrolled Damascus Gate, a main entrance to Jerusalem’s walled Old City, was identified by police as a resident of Jordan. It was not immediately clear whether he held Jordanian nationality.
The military said in a statement that a car carrying two people rammed into a civilian bus stop at a junction near the settlement of Kiryat Arba, outside the town of Hebron in the occupied West Bank.
“In the attack, three civilians were injured. In response to the immediate threat, forces at the scene fired at the vehicle, resulting in the death of one of the assailants while the other was wounded,” the statement said.
