Palestinian who allegedly tried to stab Israeli fatally shot
JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinian Health Ministry says an Israeli fatally shot a 42-year-old Palestinian in a West Bank settler outpost. The Israeli military says he tried to stab the Israeli. The health ministry Saturday identified the man as Tariq Maali, saying only that he was shot northwest of the Palestinian city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group later claimed him as a member. The Israeli military says the man arrived at the outpost and tried to stab an Israeli civilian. It said he was armed with a knife and that the Israeli, a settler, shot him. The settler wasn’t injured. The death was the latest in months of violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
