BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday continued in their search for a Palestinian teenager accused of killing an Israeli settler on Monday in the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel in the central occupied West Bank.

Israeli news website Ynet reported that 19-year-old Abd al-Karim Adel Assi, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, stabbed Rabbi Itamar Ben Gal, 29, who lived with his family in the Har Brakha settlement near Nablus in the northern West Bank, in violation of international law.

Assi reportedly stabbed Ben Gal in the chest on Monday afternoon. Ben Gal was treated on the scene by Israeli paramedics but later succumbed to his wounds.

According to Ynet, Assi fled the scene after being hit by an Israeli army officer’s vehicle.

Ynet added that Assi was a troubled youth who was abandoned by his parents at a young age and has spent the last few years in and out of shelters inside Israel for at-risk youth.
