Palestinian killed after ‘attack on Israeli soldier’
A Palestinian attempted to stab an Israeli soldier at a border crossing in the northern West Bank on Monday and was shot dead by the army, Israeli police said.
A second Palestinian, allegedly an accomplice, was arrested, according to police.
The attempted attack took place on the Palestinian side of a crossing between Israel and the occupied West Bank.
Nine Israelis, 69 Palestinians — around half of them alleged attackers — and an Arab Israeli have been killed in a wave of violence since the beginning of October, raising fears of another Palestinian intifada or uprising.
