Israeli forces kill Palestinians after alleged attacks
« on: October 17, 2015, 05:35:27 pm »
At least four Palestinians have been killed in the occupied Palestinian territories, three by Israeli security forces and one by a jewish settler, bringing the total number of Palestinians killed since the beginning of the month to 42.

On Saturday evening, an Israeli border guard killed a Palestinian after authorities alleged that the man attempted to knife the soldier at the Qalandiya checkpoint between Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

In occupied East Jerusalem, where most of the unrest has taken place, Israeli forces shot dead a 16-year old Palestinian after he allegedly drew a knife on officers in East Talpiot settlement.

The area is where two Palestinian men boarded a bus earlier in the week and allegedly began shooting and stabbing passengers, killing two Israelis and bringing the toll of Israelis killed since the beginning of October to seven.

Three more shootings on Saturday took place in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron, where about 500 Jewish settlers live in a heavily guarded enclave in the city centre surrounded by nearly 200,000 Palestinians.

In the first Hebron incident, a Palestinian tried to stab a settler before his intended victim, who was unharmed, shot him dead, the army said.

Witnesses, however, disputed the police version of events.

Video circulated by Palestinian activists showed a young man wearing a Jewish kippa, or cap, brandishing a pistol as shots rang out before Israeli soldiers moved in to pull him away from a body lying on the ground.
