Israeli forces have shot and wounded a Palestinian man in the occupied territories over an alleged stabbing attack against a police officer.
The incident took place on Tuesday, the GazaNow Palestinian media outlet reported, without specifying its location. It tweeted a picture of the man lying on the ground while blood was streaming from underneath his body.
Palestinian media cited Israeli forces as claiming that the man had stabbed and injured the police member in the city of Netanya in the Israeli-occupied territories.
Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri identified the Palestinian man as a 44-year-old resident of the occupied West Bank district of Tulkarem.
In a similar incident on Monday, Israeli military forces opened fire and killed a Palestinian teenage boy in the southern part of the occupied West Bank over a similar claim.
Over the past few years, the territories have been witnessing what is widely referred to as the Third Intifada or Palestinian Uprising against Israeli occupation.
The tensions broke out in August 2015 when Tel Aviv introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds.
Israeli forces have been confronting the Palestinian protesters with unremitting aggression, killing more than 300 of them since October that year, when the clashes intensified.
Israel’s aggression and construction activities in the occupied territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds are seen by Palestinians as a means of gradual annexation of their lands.
