BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian, on Saturday, claiming that he attempted to carry out a stabbing attack against Israeli soldiers deployed at the Zaatara checkpoint south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

The Israeli army said, in a statement, that its forces were able to "foil" a stabbing attack, adding that the Palestinian suspect was "neutralized."

No injuries were reported among Israelis.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces deployed at the checkpoint opened fire at a Palestinian who was passing by the checkpoint.
