Palestinian teen killed at Jenin checkpoint after alleged attack

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was shot and killed on Monday at the al-Jalama checkpoint north of Jenin after allegedly attempting to attack Israeli soldiers with a knife, Israel's army said.

The Israeli army said an "attempted stabbing" took place near Afula, with one Palestinian suspect shot and another arrested at the scene.

Initial reports say the incident occurred some 150 meters from the al-Jalama checkpoint north of Jenin after Israeli soldiers approached two Palestinians who they say were acting suspiciously.

One of the suspects then pulled out a knife and was shot after ignoring warnings to lay down his weapon, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Palestinian liaison office identified the victim as Ahmed Awad Abu al-Rub, 16, from the town of Qabatiya.

Mahmoud Muamin Kamil, 17, also from Qabatia, was detained following the incident.

On Saturday, Mahmoud Talal Mahmoud Nazzal, 18, was shot and killed at the al-Jalama checkpoint after allegedly attacking a security guard.

More than 70 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the start of October during demonstrations and after attempted, alleged, and actual attacks on Israeli military or civilians.

At least nine Israelis have been killed in attacks by Palestinians during the same time period.

If the Palestinians are always the attackers who were the Mizrahis and Eritreans attacking when they were mistakenly killed? If you can accept they were innocent then surely the same must be true for some Palestinians?
