Palestinian Shot and Killed After Trying to Stab Solider in West Bank

A Palestinian was shot and killed in the West Bank Monday after he was tried to stab an Israeli soldier, the military said.

A statement by the military said that soldiers stationed at the Gitai Junction, near the settlement of Ariel, shot and killed the Palestinian assailant.

The incident took place near the Barkan industrial zone, where last week two Israelis were murdered by a Palestinian co-worker at a factory. Ashraf Walid Saliman Na’alwa, 23, fatally shot Ziv Hajbi, 35, and Kim Yehezkel-Levengrond, 29, at the plant where they worked together in Barkan, and wounded another woman, 54, after which he fled.
