IOF Kills Palestinian in Al-Khalil over Alleged Stabbing Attack

Israeli occupation army shot dead a Palestinian man, claiming he had attacked an Israeli soldier near a holy site in the southern West Bank city of Al-Khalil (Hebron).

“An assailant attempted to stab a soldier adjacent to the Cave of the Patriarchs, lightly injuring him,” occupation army said in a statement.

“The soldier and other forces at the scene, responded with live fire,” the statement added.

The Israeli military said in a statement on Monday that the Palestinian “assailant” had attacked one soldier in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron), “lightly injuring him.”

The statement said the “soldier and other forces at the scene responded with live fire,” killing the Palestinian.

Casualties in Gaza

Separately, Israeli soldiers clashed with a group of Palestinians protesting in the Gaza Strip, wounding at least four of them.

Dozens of Palestinian youths took part in a protest in the east of the Gaza Strip on Sunday night as part of an extended series of protests to call for the right of return of those Palestinians displaced by Israeli wars and other acts of aggression, the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported on Monday.

Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition and teargas canisters at the Palestinian youth from across the fence, which divides Gaza from territory occupied by the Israeli regime, wounding at least four of them.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been gathering at the fence since March 30 in a series of protests dubbed “The Great March of Return.” Israeli soldiers have been heavily deployed there since before that date.
