BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian suspect was shot and killed in the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba on Friday after allegedly stabbing an Israeli border police officer as attacks continue throughout the area.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said an "Arab terrorist" was shot and killed after stabbing the officer in the Hebron settlement.

The Palestinian victim was identifiedas Muhammad Fares Abdullah al-Jaabari, 19.

The area was closed off following the incident and the policeman was lightly injured.

The incident comes amid renewed violence in East Jerusalem and the West Bank bank on Friday after seven Israelis were stabbed in attacks on Thursday and a Palestinian was shot dead in Shufat refugee camp during clashes.

Earlier, an Israeli teenager stabbed and injured four Palestinian Bedouins in the city of Dimona, seriously injuring two.

It was later reported that a Palestinian stabbed an Israeli teenager in Jerusalem, causing light injuries.

Meanwhile in the Gaza Strip, six Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli forces during clashes, bringing the total number killed in clashes since Oct. 1 to 8, including a 13-year-old.

On Thursday, four Israelis, including a soldier, were injured by a Palestinian suspect in a Tel Aviv stabbing attack, with the attacker shot dead, while an Orthodox Israeli man was stabbed in East Jerusalem and an Israeli settler stabbed in Kiryat Arba.

Wissam Faraj, 20, was shot dead during clashes in Shufat refugee camp later on Thursday after Israeli forces raided the home of a Palestinian suspect in the earlier Jerusalem stabbing.
