BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler was allegedly stabbed and moderately injured by a suspected Palestinian on Sunday near the illegal settlement of Ariel in the northern occupied West Bank, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said that the attacker "fled the scene near Ariel junction" and Israeli forces were searching the area.

Rosenfeld said that the Israeli, in his 20s, was evacuated for medical treatment in moderate condition.

Earlier on Sunday, an Israeli settler shot and critically injured a Palestinian near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement bloc after the Palestinian allegedly attempted to stab him.

Separately, a Palestinian 17-year-old girl was shot dead by Israeli police in Hebron after they claimed they saw "a knife in her hand."
