RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have banned lawyers from visiting a man suspected of fatally stabbing a settler in Nablus, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said Wednesday.
Salam al-Zaghal, from Tulkarem, on Tuesday fatally stabbed a settler while he waited at a hitch-hiking spot in the occupied West Bank.
Al-Zaghal was subsequently shot by Israeli border guards and transferred to hospital.
Israeli authorities informed the PPS that al-Zaghal is under anesthetic and is banned from receiving visits.
The PPS said they will continue efforts to visit the suspect.
