JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Seventeen-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by an Israeli settler on Thursday evening after the teen allegedly stabbed three Israeli settlers in the illegal Israeli settlement of Adam southeast of the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Local sources told Ma'an that the teen was identified as Muhammad Tareq Youssef Abu Ayyush from the village of Kobar in the central West Bank district of Ramallah.

Sources confirmed that one settler succumbed to his wounds later, the injuries of another were reported as moderate but is in a stable condition, while the third suffered minor injuries.

Medical sources confirmed that all of the injuries were located in the upper body.

A Hebrew news outlet reported that the Palestinian crossed the fence surrounding the illegal Israeli Adam settlement, without sounding the sirens, he then entered and attacked three Israeli settlers in an attempt to attack a fourth settler, the Palestinian was shot and killed immediately.

Following this, Israeli forces were immediately deployed to the scene of the attack, in fear of another Palestinian located in the area to continue the attack.

Sources said that the Palestinian reportedly used an ax to carry out the alleged stabbings.

Local sources from the Kobar village said that the Ayyush family found out about the killing through photos posted by the Israeli news media, and confirmed afterwards the suspect as their son.

The Israeli Shin Bet, Israel's General Security Services, said that the Palestinian was a close friend of another attack suspect identified as Omar al-Abed, who carried out an attack a year ago in the illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish north of Ramallah district.
