HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces, on Tuesday, for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack against Israeli soldiers in the Old City of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank.

Locals told Ma'an that the Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces for attempting to carry out a stabbing attack against Israeli soldiers situated in Hebron's Old City.

The Palestinian was identified as Yasser al-Shweiki.

Fawzi al-Shweiki, Yasser's father, confirmed to Ma'an that his son was distributing notices from the Sharia Court across Hebron City.

Sources mentioned that Israeli forces dragged Yasser's body and took into a building that is under the Israeli settlers’ control.

There were no injuries reported among Israeli soldiers.
According to Hebrew-languge news outlets, Yasser approached the Israeli soldiers with a knife in attempt to carry out a stabbing attack.
