A Palestinian man was shot dead after stabbing and killing an Israeli settler on Route 443 north of Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli media and medics reported.
An Israeli was stabbed and later died from his injuries at around 3 p.m. on Monday at a gas station along Route 443 north of Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.
The Magen David Adom ambulance service was also treating a 22-year-old Israeli settler who was lightly injured during the incident.
The attack came shortly after Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli soldier at the Huwwara checkpoint south of Nablus, Israel’s army said.
An Israeli army spokesperson said that as the Palestinian approached the checkpoint, he “drew a knife and attempted to attack a soldier.”
She said that the soldier “responded to the immediate danger” and opened fire on the Palestinian, “resulting in his death.”
No Israelis were reported injured during the incident.
The latest incident brings the total death toll on Monday to three Palestinians and one Israeli after a 16-year-old Palestinian girl was shot dead in Jerusalem earlier in the day after allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack near the Mahane Yehuda market.
Israeli media initially reported that two Israelis were wounded in the alleged attack, although a spokesperson for Hadassah hospital later confirmed that one of those injured was a 70-year-old Palestinian resident of Bethlehem, who had a light stabbing wound in his back.
The other was a 27-year-old Israeli security guard who was shot in the hand by friendly fire.
An Israeli security guard, who had been driving near the Mahane Yehuda market on Jaffa Street, got out of his car when he saw the two girls and quickly shot dead 16-year-old Hadeel Wajih Awwad and severely wounded her cousin, 14-year-old Norhan Awwad.
Video footage showed both girls running at the security officer, apparently waving scissors, before the security guard and another Israeli managed to knock the girls to the ground.
Once on the ground, the security guard ran forward and shot each of them several times. MAANNEWS
