JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian man on Sunday after he allegedly stabbed and injured an Israeli police officer near Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem, an Israeli police spokesperson said.

Micky Rosenfeld said the alleged attacker was a 38-year-old Palestinian from Nablus district in the northern occupied West Bank. Local sources named him as Baseem Abdul-Rahman Mustafa Salah.

The Israeli police officer who was injured during the attack is reportedly in light to moderate condition, a Magen David Adom medical service spokesperson said.

Witnesses near the scene told Ma'an that Israeli police shot the Palestinian man at least 11 times during the incident, adding that Israeli forces did not allow medics to reach him.

At least 100 Palestinians have been killed since the start of last month. Many were killed during alleged attacks on Israeli military and civilians, although Palestinians and right groups have disputed that a number of these cases actually were attacks.

The attacks that have taken placed have killed 19 Israelis in the same time period.
