Israeli forces kill Palestinian youth near Tulkarem

Feb. 1, 2016 9:35 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 2, 2016 10:08 A.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian youth was shot dead by Israeli forces on Monday after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli soldier south of Tulkarem.

Palestinian medical sources identified the teenager as 19-year-old Ahmad Hassan Tuba from the village of Kafr Jammal near Tulkarem.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that Israeli forces found Tuba near the illegal settlement of Salit, south of Tulkarem, adding that Tuba “drew a knife and attempted to stab” an Israeli soldier.

Israeli forces shot at Tuba, who died on the scene. The spokesperson said none of the Israeli soldiers were injured.

Since a wave of unrest began in occupied East Jerusalem in October and spread across the West Bank and Israel, more than 160 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces or settlers, and over 20 Israelis have died in attacks.

On Sunday, a suspected Palestinian stabbed and lightly injured a 17-year-old Israeli near occupied East Jerusalem's Damascus gate. A 16-year-old Palestinian turned himself into Israeli authorities in connection with the attack a day later.
