HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A 36-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces, on Monday evening, after he allegedly attempted to carry out a stabbing attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces fired several live bullets towards a Palestinian man after he allegedly attempted to carry out a stabbing attack at the al-Muhawel Israeli checkpoint, northeast of Hebron City.

Witnesses identified the killed Palestinian as Wael Abed al-Fattah al-Jaabari, a married father of two children and a resident of Hebron City.

A Ma'an reporter said that after Israeli forces shot al-Jaabari, they left him on the ground and prevented ambulances from reaching the area.

Sources confirmed that al-Jaabari eventually succumbed to his injuries on the scene.

Israeli forces then transferred al-Jaabari's body to an unknown location.

No injuries were reported among Israeli settlers or Israeli soldiers.

The videos below show Israeli forces open fire towards al-Jaabari and the trasnfer of his body afterwards:
