2 Palestinians Stab Israeli Soldier, Then Are Shot, Killed

Thursday, 24 March 2016 05:13 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says two Palestinians stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli soldier before troops shot and killed the pair.

The military says the attack took place at a military checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron on Thursday. It says the soldier was taken to hospital for treatment.

The assault is the latest in a six-month wave of stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks that has killed 28 Israelis and two Americans. Over the same time, about 187 Palestinians have died by Israeli fire. Israel says most of them were attackers, and the rest died in clashes with Israeli security forces.

Israel blames the attacks on Palestinian incitement by leaders and on social media. Palestinians say the violence stems from frustration at nearly five decades of Israeli military occupation.
