Israeli Army martyrs Palestinian in West Bank

Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian who tried to stab them in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, the Israeli military said, and the Palestinian health ministry confirmed a Palestinian had been killed.

The Israeli military said the soldiers had been under immediate threat from the Palestinian when they opened fire on him.

A wave of Palestinian street attacks that began in October 2015 has slowed in recent months but not stopped. At least 253 Palestinians and one Jordanian citizen have been killed since the violence began.
