A Palestinian stabbed and wounded a soldier in the southern West Bank Tuesday before being shot dead, the army said, the latest in a three-month wave of attacks.

 

“An assailant stabbed a soldier at the Gush Etzion junction,” an army statement said.

 

“Forces at the scene responded to the attack and shot the assailant, resulting in his death. The victim is receiving emergency medical treatment.”

 

A spokesman for Israel’s Magen David Adom emergency medical service said a 34-year-old man was taken to hospital with stab wounds to his face and hand.
