Israeli soldiers killed, Saturday, a young Palestinian man after he allegedly stabbed an Israeli settler, inflicting moderate wounds, in occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.
Media sources said the Palestinian, Mohammad Shawkat Salima, 25, was shot by at least two soldiers at the al-Misrara junction in Bab al-Amoud, in Jerusalem.
They added that the soldiers also attacked many Palestinians who gathered in the area and fired gas bombs at them.
The Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) said the soldiers injured at least three Palestinians in Bab al-‘Amoud, in addition to abducting two others.
It added that one of the wounded was shot with a concussion grenade, and one was beaten by the soldiers, in addition to dozens who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
The slain young Palestinian man was from Salfit, in the central West Bank. His death led to protests in Jerusalem, Salfit, and other parts of the occupied West Bank.
Israeli sources have confirmed that the injured Israeli was a Haredi man who suffered moderate wounds.
The Israeli police issued a statement and released a surveillance video showing the Palestinian man stabbing the Israeli, in addition to attempting to stab the police before he was shot.
The Israeli army and the police closed the entire area, and prevented the Palestinians from entering it, in addition to invading many surrounding areas, including in the Old City and around the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The soldiers also assaulted a Palestinian child and took him to a surveillance room in Bab al-Amoud area.
