Israeli forces have shot and killed another Palestinian in the occupied West Bank over allegations that the victim tried to stab an Israeli soldier.

Israeli forces Thursday shot and killed a Palestinian near the Beit Einun junction northeast of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron after an alleged stab attempt, witnesses and Zionist Army said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that a Palestinian attempted to stab Israeli soldiers stationed near the junction, who responded by opening fire on the alleged assailant.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli military forces prevented Palestinian Red Crescent medics from accessing the shot Palestinian for medical treatment.

Clashes erupted following the incident between locals and Israeli forces, who deployed in the area and closed the main road.

The Beit Einun junction has been site to at least four Palestinian deaths this month, among over 150 Palestinians to be killed since violence increased in the occupied Palestinian territory in October.
