BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teenager was shot dead Saturday by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron after allegedly stabbing an Israeli border police officer in the third alleged attack of the day.

Palestinian locals said that Israeli forces opened fire at the woman close to the the Wadi al-Ghrus area near the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement.

She was identified as 17-year-old Bayan Ayman Abd al-Hadi al-Esseili.

Her family told Ma'an they were informed by Israeli authorities that their daughter had been killed after she allegedly tried to stab a soldier.

A border police woman sustained light injuries to her hand, according to Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld, who reported that a "female terrorist was shot at the scene."

In a separate incident, an Israeli settler shot and killed Fadil Qawasmi, 18,earlier Saturday morning on Shuhada Street in Hebron's Old City, hours before Israeli forces shot dead a 16-year-old Palestinianin occupied East Jerusalem.

Both teens are accused of carrying out stabbing attacks, although no Israelis were injured in either incident.

Saturday's events bring the total number of Palestinians killed to 40 since the beginning of the month. Seven Israelis have been killed by Palestinians in the same period.

On Friday Israeli forces shot dead three Palestinians during demonstrations in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, and one was killed after stabbing an Israeli soldier in East Jerusalem.

Another Palestinian succumbed to wounds sustained during a Gaza demonstration the week before.

A group of prominent Israeli and international human rights organizations on Wednesday released a joint statement arguing that recent calls by Israeli politicians to shoot Palestinian attackers rather than arrest them effectively endorses the killing of Palestinians.

The statement, which was signed by nine groups including B'Tselem and Amnesty International, added that "in instances when Jews have been suspected of attacks, none of the suspects has been shot."

"Politicians and senior police officers have not only failed to act to calm the public climate of incitement, but on the contrary have openly called for the extrajudicial killing of (Palestinian) suspects," the groups said.

PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat announced last week that the Palestinian leadership would be contacting the High Commissioner for Human Rights to request an investigation into the recent killing of Palestinians by Israeli forces.

At least the Israeli forces should have had the descency and respect to cover that dead girl body. Were they trying to show off their trophy.

Iran and Hizballah is directing the GlamPals on how and when to jump the terror offensive from one stage to the next, following Israel’s partial success in slowing the flood of Palestinian knife attacks, Hamas media instructed terrorists to switch from stabbing attacks to car attacks.

Jews in Palestine seem to be simply murdering Palestinians as they please and claiming 'there was a stabbing attack.'

Saeb ERekat - put your money where your mouth is and END SECURITY COLLABORATION WITH THE ZIONIST KILLERS. Don't whinge to the west - it is in YOUR power to stop this, so DO IT. Use your forces against the Israeli killers, not against your own people.

I demand tanks, F-16's, drones, an Iron Dome, an army for the Palestinians so they can finally fight against their occupation in a fair and equal way. Shame on the international world for doing nothing, for not upholding international law, for not honoring justice. UNothing, USeless.. all.

Oh come on. The Palestinian was allegedly shot dead. Just like they allegedly stabbed the Israeli. If you're going to have proper balanced reporting then unless your reporter was on the scene and witnessed, then both acts are alleged until proven in a court of law.
