BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was shot and seriously injured after allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack which injured two Israelis on Monday in East Jerusalem, Israeli police and media reported.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said that there was a "stabbing attack" next to Israeli police headquarters in Jerusalem, located in Sheikh Jarrah, and the "terrorist" was shot at the scene by police officers.

A Ma'an reporter identified the suspect asFarah Bakir, 17, a student at the Abdullah Bin al-Hussein high school.

Israeli media reported that the teenager was "neutralized" without providing further details on her condition, while two Israelis were said to be injured, including a police officer.

The Hebrew language Ynet website later released a video of the incident showing the teenager injured and bleeding on the ground and surrounded by armed Israeli forces.

Another man can be seen being detained by Israeli forces.

Earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian teenager in East Jerusalem after an alleged stabbing attempt on border police officers, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said the suspect pulled out a knife at officers and was shot dead at the scene.

The incident occurred near Lion's Gate, with the area closed off afterwards.

Israeli news site the Times of Israel reported that border police asked a Palestinian man to take his hands out of his pockets after becoming suspicious, at which point the suspect attempted to attack the officer, hitting his protective vest.

The attacker was then shot multiple times.

Palestinian witnesses told Ma'an that there was no attempted stabbing at the time of the shooting, and the man was killed as he was walking in the area.

The suspect was identified as Mustafa Adel al-Khatib, 18.

The latest death brings the total number of Palestinians killed to 25 since the beginning of October.

Screw international laws, now they execute people on the spot without the need for any investigation, while the apartheid state of Israel would only praise the police, since they want to get ride of anyone "non-jewish" or the chosen ones according to jewish beliefs.

This is cold blooded murder of a teenage girl. No other nation on earth would tolerate such blatant racism and extrajudicial executions. Israel seems to demonstrate daily that it's a failed state and the USA should stop its support of these fascists without delay. It is appalling.
