Fourth attack on Israelis in uptick in violence

A Palestinian stabbed an Israeli soldier on Saturday in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron before he was shot dead, the army said, in the fourth attack on Israelis in less than 24 hours.

A military statement said the attacker drew a knife during a routine security check in Hebron’s Tel Rumeida neighbourhood, wounding the soldier.

“In response to the immediate threat, forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” the statement said.
