SALFIT (Ma'an) -- One Israeli was killed and another two Israelis were critically injured after a Palestinian allegedly carried out a stabbing and shooting attack at the junction of the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, north of Salfit City, in the northern occupied West Bank, on Sunday.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, a Palestinian arrived to the Ariel Junction and carried out a stabbing attack against an Israeli soldier, who was confirmed dead shortly after the attack.

Sources added that following the stabbing attack, the Palestinian seized the soldier’s weapon and opened fire at another Israeli soldier, whose medical condition was described as critical.

Sources said that the Palestinian fled the Ariel Junction towards Gitai Junction and opened fire at four Israeli settlers, seriously injuring one of them.

Sources confirmed that the Palestinian fled the scene via vehicle.

Israeli forces and police sealed off the area and are conducting wide-scale searches to find the suspected Palestinian.

Additionally, Israeli authorities ordered nearby illegal Israeli settlements to seal off their entrances until the Palestinian is detained.
