JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth was killed after being shot by Israeli forces under the pretext of attempting to carry out a stabbing attack in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem.

Hebrew-language news outlets claimed the Palestinian youth attempted to stab one of the members of the Israeli forces, who responded with opening fire at the youth and killing him.

The Palestinian was identified as Ahmad Muhammad Mahamid from the Umm al-Fahm town in northern Israel.

Sources confirmed there were no injuries reported among Israeli forces.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces closed the gates of the Old City of Jerusalem and forced all shops to close and evacuate the area.
