Israeli sources reported Saturday that a Palestinian man stabbed an Israeli border policeman at a military roadblock near the Shufat refugee camp, in occupied East Jerusalem. The soldier was mildly injured while the assailant fled the scene. Israeli Ynet News reported that the stabbing took place on Saturday afternoon shortly after a Palestinian car, transporting two Palestinians who suffered injuries whilst at work, was stopped at the roadblock. A crowd of Palestinians gathered at the scene and one person stabbed the officer in the neck using a screwdriver. Both the policeman and the two Palestinians were taken to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Also on Saturday, Israeli soldiers fired warning shots, near the illegal settlement of Susya, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, when a Jewish settler approached a military post without identifying himself, Ynet reported.
The settler was not hurt and was taken into custody for questioning. An Israeli military spokesperson, speaking to Ynet, stated that the soldiers acted according to instructions.
