BBC: An Israeli civilian has been stabbed to death in a settlement near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. The 31-year-old victim was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries, a hospital spokesman said. Two other Israelis were wounded in the attack in Adam on Thursday. One, aged 50, is in a critical condition and the other suffered minor injuries.
The Israeli army says the attacker was shot and killed, reportedly by a civilian who was passing by. It says troops will be sent to nearby Kubar village, where the 17-year-old Palestinian attacker is reported to have lived.
“The terrorist infiltrated the community of Adam, north of Jerusalem, and stabbed three civilians,” the army said in a statement. “Troops arrived at the scene and are searching the area.”
The Ministry of Health announced that the dead are Ahmed Munir Suleiman Al-Bassous, 28, Ubada Asaad Khader Farwana, 29, and Mohammed Tawfiq Mohammed Al-Ar’eer, 27. A fourth person was seriously injured.
The shell was fired directly at them, while they were in a monitoring point in east Gaza City. The explosion disfigured their bodies.
