Israeli forces kill Palestinian teen after alleged stabbing near Hebron settlement

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian teenager was shot dead by an Israeli security guard on Wednesday following an alleged stabbing attack in an illegal settlement north of Hebron.

Palestinian officials identified the slain Palestinian as Hamzeh Youssif Zamaareh, 19, from the town of Halhoul north of Hebron.

The Israeli army said in a statement that a Palestinian stabbed an Israeli security guard in the Karmei Tzur settlement near Halhoul before another guard shot him dead.

The injured guard was taken to hospital and was reported as only being lightly injured.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that Israeli forces raided the Zamaareh family home following the incident, causing clashes to erupt with residents in the area. No injuries were reported.

Hundreds of Palestinians have been shot, detained, or killed over the past two years in alleged attempted stabbing attacks against mostly uniformed Israeli soldiers or security officials.

Israeli forces have been widely condemned by rights groups for what have been deemed “extrajudicial killings,” in situations where alleged assailants could have been detained in a non-lethal manner.
