Israeli forces kill Sudanese man suspected of stabbing soldier in Ashkelon

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot and killed a Sudanese man suspected of stabbing an Israeli soldier in the southern coastal city of Ashkelon in Israel on Sunday.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri told Ma’an that a man, identified as Sudanese national Kamil Hassan, 32, allegedly stabbed an Israeli soldier in the central bus station in Ashkelon, causing moderate injuries.

Hassan was then shot and critically wounded by Israeli forces as he tried to flee the scene, al-Samri added. Hassan later succumbed to his wounds while at the hospital.

The likely motives for the attack were unknown at this time, the spokeswoman said.

The UN says there are some 53,000 refugees and asylum-seekers living in Israel.

In 2013, Israel launched a crackdown on what it said were 60,000 undocumented African migrants, rounding up and deporting 3,920 by the end of the year, and building a hi-tech fence along the border with Egypt.
