TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday raided the home of a man suspected of fatally stabbing a settler in Nablus, locals said.

Eight Israeli military jeeps raided the Tulkarem home of Salam al-Zaghal as well as several neighboring homes, locals told Ma'an.

Al-Zaghal is suspected of stabbing an Israeli settler near Zatara checkpoint south of Nablus early Tuesday.

"The Palestinian suspect stabbed an Israeli sitting at a bus stop. He died," police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP. A shootout took place when Israeli border police sped to the area and fired towards the attacker, she said.

"He grabbed the (victim's) weapon and fired towards the border police force that was in the area. They fired back and neutralised him," Samri said.

The victim, a man in his 20s, lived in a settlement in the northern West Bank, Samri said, without specifying which.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that the Palestinian suspect was taken to hospital for treatment.
