Palestinian shot dead after alleged stabbing attack near Salfit

SALFIT (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces, on Monday, after he allegedly attempted to stab Israeli soldiers in the Barkan industrial area, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel near Salfit City in the northern occupied West Bank.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported Israeli forces opened fire at a Palestinian after he allegedly attempted to stab several Israeli soldiers at the Gitai Avishar Junction.

Locals identified the identity of the killed Palestinian as Elias Saleh Yassin, 22, from the Bidya village in western Salfit.

The Israeli army confirmed that no injuries were reported among Israelis.

Israeli West Bank Regional Council Head, Yossi Dagan, applauded the killing of the Palestinian and pledged that the occupation would remain and even expand on the expense of the Palestinian people in the West Bank.

This is the third attack to occur in the northern West Bank over the past eight days.
