- Story Text:Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian who tried to stab them on Tuesday (June 20) in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military said.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the Palestinian was killed. The Israeli military said the soldiers were responding to an immediate threat 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. Israel says at least 171 of those killed were carrying out attacks. Others died during clashes and protests.
