A Palestinian stabbed two Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank Monday before being shot and arrested, the Israeli occupation army said.
“An assailant armed with a knife stabbed two soldiers during routine activity near Al-Arroub,” an army statement said, referring to an area south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.
“Forces shot and detained the assailant,” it added.
An army spokeswoman confirmed the suspect was a Palestinian and that the two soldiers’ wounds were not life threatening.
The occupied territories have been, since October 1, rocked by a wave of operations against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds.
Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.
However the occupation forces have been brutally attacking the Palestinians under the pretext of staging stabbing attacks.
The Palestinian operations since the start of October have killed 34 Israelis, while the Israeli occupation forces killed at least 215 Palestinians.
